Oct. 14, 2009 – For the fourth consecutive year, the Royal Canadian Mint has been named
one of Canada's Top 100 Employers for 2010. This annual list, published
by MediaCorp, recognizes employers that are industry leaders at
attracting and retaining employees.

"The Royal Canadian Mint is extremely proud to be included as one of
Canada's Top 100 Employers, particularly to be among a list of such
distinguished and industry-leading Canadian companies," said Ian E.
Bennett, President and CEO of the Royal Canadian Mint. "I would like to
take this opportunity to congratulate employees for making the Mint
such a great place to work each and every day."

The Mint has also once again been selected as one of the Top 25 Employers in the National Capital Region.

The Mint was selected for Canada's Top 100 Employers for 2010 for
several reasons, including: health and family-friendly benefits such as
exceptional parental leave top-up payments; physical workplace
advantages which include onsite fitness facilities; a broad training
and skills development program; and competitive financial benefits and
compensation which include generous pension plan contributions.

The Royal Canadian Mint, with facilities located in both Ottawa and Winnipeg, is a commercial Crown corporation which is responsible for the production of all circulation coins used in Canada
and for the management of the supporting distribution system. Founded
in 1908, the Mint has become one of the world's foremost producers of
circulation, collector and bullion investment coins. It also has a gold
and silver refinery.

The Ottawa facility, which occupies the same
premises on which the Mint was founded 101 years ago, produces
hand-crafted collector and commemorative coins, gold bullion coins,
medals and medallions. It is here that all the master tooling is done
to create the dies that strike coin designs for both circulation and
commemorative issues. The Mint's gold and silver refining as well as
its advanced engineering operations are also located in Ottawa.

Established in 1976, the Winnipeg facility is a
high-tech, high-volume manufacturing facility. This is where all of
Canada's circulation coinage is produced. Over 40 coining presses
enable the production of up to 20 million coins per day. The Mint also
strikes foreign circulation coinage in Winnipeg, having produced coins for over 70 different countries over the past 25 years.

With over 900 employees, the Mint has become one of the most modern and innovative in the world.
