Well worth a visit and doing the tour, so interesting what is involved in making of the coins. Unbelievable to see millions and millions of dollars worth of gold rolls being run through the press. We were also lucky enough to see other functions being performed like rimming and stamping. Interesting to see Olympic medals and the mould for the 99999 coin that they made only six of. A rich history and something Canada should be very proud of. Good informative tour that lasted about 45 minutes and ending up in the gift boutique where you can try your hand at lifting a gold bar which is very heavy!
