First time visited Royal Canadian mint and took guided tour. Very interesting place to visit and very informative. The guide is very good, friendly and have sense of humor. She explained all the history of Royal Canadian mint and also the history of Canadian coin....More
Taking the guided tour of the Royal Canadian Mint was a real learning experience. Our lovely young tour guide was engaging and knowledgeable. We were amazed to learn how coins are made and all the different types of currency. We were particularly surprized and amazed...More
While walking out to see the falls we passed the Royal mint and then spent some time in the place to be informed in a rather pleasant environment, didn't think much to the gift shop but the ticket price was reasonable.
We toured Royal Canadian Mint just a few weeks ago and really enjoyed it. We didn’t make the reservation in advance, just went to the gate and purchased tickets there for a later/ afternoon tour. Tour is reasonably priced ($8), approx. 45 mins to 1...More
Somehow we missed seeing or lifting the gold bar and were therefore disappointed with the experience. The gift shop had many expensive collector coins, interesting to look at. There was an elevator, bathrooms and a bench to sit on while waiting for the tour to...More
Where else in the world can you go and really touch a solid gold bar...even lift it up? Certainly this attracts people to the gift shop, which is free to enter after passing though the outer security gate.
We paid for the tour, which I...More
We accessed this place after having visited the Notre Dame basilica earlier on and returning after to the Museum of Art.
We were delighted this place was opened even at the weekend, the downside was the workers were not working then, so our tour guide,...More
This tour was very interesting and informative and our tour guide Camilla was awesome. This is a small mint that makes investment and collectible coins in precious metals. The circulation coins are no longer made here but are made in Winnipeg. This mint also makes...More
You can tour, with a guide, the manufacture and see how these very pricy coins from so many countries are designed and made. Some olympic medals were made there as well. I think the entry fee is too high.

Hi...you don't need to reserve unless it is a huge group like a tour bus size. Tours come every 45 minutes more or less depending how many per group. The waiting area is quite nice as it is in the gift shop and you can look at the coins and collections, ask questions before and after the tour. Plus washrooms available too. During the week, you can see the workers making the collection or limited edition coins. If still not sure, you can always give them a call and they would be happy to answer any other questions you have. They are so nice there.

It is true that the machines are shut down for the weekend tours. I still found it worthwhile to visit the mint just to see all the equipment and some of the processes. If you are interested in seeing the machines in action, best to visit during the weekdays when the mint is up and running. Might also be a little less people in there as well. Hope you get to enjoy a tour someday!
