Royal Canadian Mint proudly displays 100-kg, 99.999% pure gold bullion coin


Recommended Posts

OTTAWA, June 25 /CNW Telbec/ - From June 25 to July 8, visitors to the

Royal Canadian Mint's Sussex Drive facility will have a chance to see the

world's first 100-kg, 99.999% pure gold bullion coin with a $1 million face

value. The biggest gold coin in the world, and a marvel of Canadian

engineering and craftsmanship, is on display for this very limited time to all

visitors taking a guided tour of the Royal Canadian Mint.


The Royal Canadian Mint's headquarters occupy an historic building in

central Ottawa, the same premises on which the Mint was founded in 1908.

Today, the Ottawa facility produces hand-crafted collector and commemorative

coins, gold bullion coins, medals and medallions. It is here that all 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 in Ottawa.
