Statement by the Royal Canadian Mint

OTTAWA, ONTARIO – September 11, 2015 – The Royal Canadian Mint was informed that an individual has been charged by the RCMP as part of an investigation related to the theft of gold from the Mint. Because this is now before the court, we will not comment on the matter except to say that the Mint has been assisting authorities. The individual in question is a former employee of the Mint, whose employment was terminated earlier in 2015.

We want to reinforce that security is a cornerstone of the Mint's business both in the products we develop and the facilities in which they are produced and stored. We continuously assess and update our security measures and protocols to help us manage potential risks.

In light of this new development, the Mint is being more vigilant than ever and we have introduced new measures to further enhance our industry-leading standards.
