The Royal Canadian Mint is the official sovereign mint of Canada. The mint was founded in 1908 with the Ottawa Mint facility and that remained the only facility until 1976 when the Winnipeg Mint opened. The Winnipeg facility issues circulation coins and banknotes, while the Ottawa Mint produces all bullion and commemorative coinage.
