The Royal Canadian Mint is proud to participate in Culture Days 2010

Back to Listing

Culture Days a Canada-wide interactive celebration of arts and culture – takes place September 24, 25 and 26. It's the first and largest coast to coast to coast arts and culture party involving over 4,000 cultural activities across the country. Not only is it the biggest - it's also 100% free!

Through innovative coin themes, the Royal Canadian Mint has been celebrating Canada's history, culture and values since 1908. As an interesting and educational destination during Culture Days 2010, we invite you to visit the Mint for a Coin Discovery Tour. During these 45-minute guided tours of our Ottawa and Winnipeg production facilities, you’ll be able to see how coins are made and ask questions along the way. You'll also have the opportunity to take home Canadian-inspired gifts and collector coins from our boutique. While in the boutique, be sure to enter our draw for the chance to win a 2010 Proof Set honouring the 100th Anniversary of the Canadian Navy!

This is your chance to see a variety of coins that are internationally renowned for unsurpassed quality and craftsmanship. We hope to see you during Culture Days 2010!
