Illustrating the history and cultural diversity of Canada, the collection of coins, mainly Canadian, of the Musée Canadien de l’Arme et du Bronze is full of genuine works of art. Though each one of us uses and recognizes them, only a select few realize that coins were cast in solid gold and precious metals. The collection of the Musée Canadien de l’Arme et du Bronze includes the most beautiful coins to be issued from the Royal Canadian Mint, some of which are extremely valuable.
