In operation since 1911, The Royal Canadian Mint operates one of the most technically advanced and respected gold and silver refineries in the world, producing bars, coins and other custom products. The Royal Canadian Mint began refining gold to 9999 fine purity in the mid-1960's. In 1982, the refinery became the worlds' first to produce 9999 bullion coins, an achievement surpassed in 1998 when they reached "five nines" purity levels. Today, they are even able to produce granulation gold that is 99999 fine.
The Royal Canadian Mint is listed as an active Good Delivery Refiner by the London Bullion Market Association.
