Ottawa - Show me the MONEY!

After leaving the Iroquois Village, we headed over to the Royal Canadian Mint. From investment bullion's, The Vancouver Olympic medals of 2010 and a $500,000 bar of gold, the kids witnessed the entire process, complete with machinery and processes, of how some of our most precious metals/coins are forged and designed.  Everyone enjoyed being given the opportunity to actually hold a gold bar with a total weight of 28 pounds.
