Northwest Territorial Mint: In The News

World's First Million Dollar Coin

Northwest Territorial Mint: Did You Know?On May 4th, 2007 The Royal Canadian Mint unveiled the world's first 100-kilogram (220.5-pound) pure gold bullion coin Thursday, worth one million Canadian dollars (850,000 US), breaking a record for value. But this loonie will not go into circulation. The over-sized coin is a new denomination for Canada and required an amendment to the Canadian currency act. Three of the coins were produced only after interested buyers came forward. It is 21 inches (53 centimeters) in diameter and 1.2 inches (three centimeters) thick.
