Managed by the Bank of Canada, the Museum presents programs for students and the general public that interpret Canada’s monetary and economic heritage, increase public awareness of the Bank of Canada, and foster confidence in bank notes and the Canadian financial system.

Explore the Museum
Join the Currency Museum as we bid a CENTimental farewell to the many years of Canadian pennydom. Our exhibit showcases important moments in the history of the one cent coin. It also features the last penny ever minted, struck by the Honourable Jim Flaherty, Minister of Finance on 4 May 2012.
Gallery 8 is currently undergoing an upgrade. The coins have been removed from the cabinets for conservation. We apologize for any inconvenience caused. The bank notes in the sliding wall panels will not be affected.
As of 2 July 2013 the Currency Museum is closing its doors, to reopen when the renewal of the Bank of Canada’s head office is complete. In the interim, please continue checking this website for updates on a planned series of travelling exhibitions, coming to a city or town near you.
