WINNIPEG, Manitoba, Dec. 4, 2019 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --

For the first time since it opened its doors 43 years ago, the Royal Canadian 
Mint's Winnipeg facility has struck pure gold and fine silver numismatic coins. 
These special collectibles are the product of a unique marriage of expertise 
between Winnipeg and Ottawa employees who joined forces to create "made in 
Manitoba" tributes to the Mint's world-renowned Maple Leaf bullion coins.
