The Royal Canadian Mint is committed to recycling coins.
Every coin put back into circulation is one less to produce, which makes recycling an efficient, cost-effective and environmentally friendly way to provide change to the marketplace.
Turn small change into found money and help the environment!
Pennies, nickels, dimes. quarters, loonies, toonies. Coins add up fast, yet often lie around in jars and drawers. Instead of leaving your hidden treasure to collect dust, why not recycle your spare change? Every coin recycled is one that doesn’t have to be produced which helps to preserve the environment and reduces emissions caused by smelting and mining.
You’ll be amazed at how quickly your spare change adds up to something big!
Did you know! the Canadian coin recycling program in place today, removes all pennies, nickels pre-1982, all silver dimes and quarters pre-1968, and all silver 50 cent and one dollar pre-1967 from circulation.
