Visit the Mint

Ottawa facility

Ottawa headquarters

The Boutique and Tour Walk will be closed on Tuesday, February 18 for inventory. We apologize for any inconvenience that this may cause.

The Royal Canadian Mint's headquarters occupy the historic building in central Ottawa where the Mint was founded in 1908. Today, the Ottawa facility produces hand-crafted collector and commemorative coins, gold bullion coins, medals and medallions. This is where the master tooling is done to create the dies that strike coin designs for both circulation and commemorative issues. The Mint's gold refining and advanced engineering operations are also located here in Ottawa.

Visit the Ottawa boutique at 320 Sussex Drive to add to your coin collection, find exciting gift ideas and take home some Mint memorabilia. OR take a guided tour to learn more about the exacting skill that goes into precision coin design.

Plan your visit to the Ottawa Mint:

  • Learn how coins are made by joining an interactive guided tour with one of the friendly tour guides (English or French)
  • See the famous Vancouver 2010 athlete medals
  • Learn about the record-breaking Million Dollar Coin – the largest coin ever produced

Other Nearby Attractions: The Mint is within walking distance to many popular Ottawa attractions including the National Gallery of Canada and the Byward Market.
