We visited on Saturday during a flying visit to Winnipeg and only managed to secure a self guided tour which never really explains what is going on. With no one working as it is a weekend it was not much to look at either.

Having visited the Mint in Ottawa we had high hopes but departed hugely deflated.

Highlight is lifting the 10kg gold bar. They should take that display on the road.

The gist shop is cool

I have been visiting Winnipeg nearly every year for the past 30 years, even lived there for three, and have never visited the Mint! Finally made it this trip! It was a great tour.

It wasn’t a long tour or really in-depth, but it wasn’t expensive for our family of five so it was still a worthwhile afternoon outing for us. The tour takes you upstairs for an upper view of the factory where the coins are made. Our tour guide, Maxime, was very knowledgeable and engaging. She had several samples of blanks and the destroyed coins that we could pass around to see up close. The tour might normally be boring for a 7 year old boy but Maxime kept him engaged and interested!

The kids enjoyed looking through the boutique with all the collector coins, and the display where you could “lift”a gold bar.

We were hoping for a few more photo ops, as you are not allowed to take pictures while upstairs on the tour (for good reason, I agree), but the few we found will still be memorable.

This is an operating high-security facility which is at the same time a museum. It is amazing how they managed to combine this contradictive features in one place!
One can see how the loonies and toonies are being made through the glass and additionally the tour guide will tell interesting fact from the past of the mint and coins production.
