Money!

Take a free tour of the mint. You won't regret it. Fascinating to see how your coins get designed and made.

It's not everyday that you can see where coins are made.. it's a fun visit. Plenty of beautiful landscaping to enjoy, also. Great for kids, families, or just for yourself. The tour is informative, and just the right length. The Mint is accessible by transit, but the buses are few and far between.. it's easier to get there by car... More

Enjoyed going on the tour of the Mint. It's amazing how many coins are made here, not only for Canada, but many other countries in the world. As you drive up to the parking lot, the flags are displayed of all the countries that they make coins for. It is very impressive! We enjoyed the guided tour.

The Mint has a great deal of potential but need to overhaul their approach. It can turn out to be boring as it is mostly observing machines that print coins for many countries. The grounds are impressive with a surrounding moat with local water birds. The flags that line the entrance why are impressive as it shows all the countries... More

Located at the corner of Trans Canada Highway number 1 and Highway 59 is one of two Royal Canadian Mints. This one in Winnipeg is solemnly dedicated to coins and medals. Here you can see the medals which were made here for 2010 Vancouver Olympics. Mint is opened to public daily and there is availability to arrange guided tour. Also... More

An interesting way to spend an hour. We followed the free self guided tour and found it all very informative. Seeing the mint in action on a week day was great. The shop is fun too.

Went on a Saturday so none of the equipment was in operation but we were still taken on a very informative tour by Echo, who was a very good guide. At the end they allowed us to "trade" one of our loonies for a brand new one that was not yet in circulation in a beautiful cardboard holder for no... More

If you go, make sure you call ahead and book a tour, otherwise, you wander the gift shop with nothing to do. If you do take the tour, it costs $6/person and is about 45 minutes, but kinda boring. The guide takes you along a bunch of windows and beyond a locked door to explain the process that is all... More

If you're Canadian and want to see where your coins are made - this is the place to go. If you are in Winnipeg & have the time this is well worth the visit. You will enjoy your tour.
