    About the Royal Canadian Mint

    Over the past 101 years, the Royal Canadian Mint has emerged as a global
leader in minting. A few of its internationally-renowned "firsts" include
developing a revolutionary coin-plating process, producing the world's
thinnest bi-metallic coin, the purest 99.999% bullion gold coin and first
coloured circulation coin in the world.
    The Ottawa facility, which occupies the same premises on which the Mint
was founded, produces hand-crafted collector and commemorative coins, gold
bullion coins, medals and medallions. It also houses a gold and silver
refinery. Established in 1976, the Winnipeg Mint is a high-tech, high-volume
manufacturing facility where Canada's circulation coinage is produced, as well
as coins for countries around the world.
