Visit the Mint

Ottawa Location

Following advice and guidance from local health authorities to help limit the spread of COVID-19, the Mint has suspended tours and closed our boutiques in Ottawa.

We are committed to doing everything we can to keep our employees, customers and visitors healthy and safe. You can rest assured that the Mint is committed to providing a gratifying experience for you, our customers and we will make use of, social platforms and authorized e-mail notifications to keep you informed.

The Mint regrets the impact of this decision on customers and those who intended to tour the facilities over the next few weeks.

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.
