The Royal Canadian Mint was founded in 1908. As the sovereign mint of Canada, it provides the nation with many different coins that have monetary backing from the Canadian Government. The RCM has its own refining capabilities, and the mint refines gold and other precious metals from the Yukon Territories. The original facility is in Ottawa, but a second location opened in Winnipeg in the 1980s.
Each 2017 1 oz Proof Silver Canadian Brilliant Birch Leaves with Drusy Stone Coins ships in a Royal Canadian Mint maroon clamshell. This packaging will protect the coin and allow for a great displaying option.
