The Royal Canadian Mint was founded in 1908 to process gold and other precious metals discovered in the Yukon Territories. It was the first step in Canadian independence, providing the nation with its own minting capacity. The opening of a second facility in Winnipeg in 1980 increased the mints capacity.
