Royal Mint

Next door to the War Museum is the mint at 320 Sussex Drive. No longer producing day-to-day coinage, it strikes special-edition coins, commemorative pieces, bullion investment coins and the like. Founded in 1908 and renovated in the mid-1980s, this imposing stone building has always been Canada’s major refiner of gold. Tours are given by appointment; call to arrange one and see the process- from sheets of metal to bags of coins. It’s open day to Friday. Admission is $2, family $8. Sorry, no free samples.
