Coin exchange for new ‘King’ coins today in Ottawa

The Royal Canadian Mint is hosting a coin exchange at its Ottawa boutique today, inviting the public to trade their change to collect the first circulation coins featuring the effigy of King Charles III.

This is a unique opportunity to collect one of each circulating denomination featuring Canada’s new royal effigy. Visitors will receive a package of 2023-dated coins containing $2, $1, 25-cent, 10-cent, and 5-cent coins worth $3.40.

A limit of one coin package per guest will be exchanged while supplies last. Coin exchanges are cash-only transactions; any combination of Canadian circulation coin or banknote denominations is acceptable. Guests are asked to bring exact change, if possible.

The exchange runs until 4 p.m. today at the Royal Canadian Mint Boutique, 320 Sussex Drive, Ottawa — (613) 993-8990.
