Ever wanted to see an Olympic medal up close? Or wonder what a million-dollar coin looks like? Then a visit to the Royal Canadian Mint is in order. All 1,014 Olympic and Paralympic medals were created here, each one with a unique design. Tours include a history of Canada’s currency and showcase some of the most stunning coins artists have produced. The Mint is even getting in on “royal fever” with a selection of coins dedicated to the royal wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton. Available in the boutique starting May 2, these coins range from $29.95 to $104.95 and make a great souvenir. With its convenient downtown location and important role in Canadian history, the Mint is definitely worth a visit.
