Royal Canadian Mint making waves in the Caribbean

October 8, 2013 – The Royal Canadian Mint announced recent contract wins with the Eastern Caribbean Central Bank (ECCB), the Central Bank of Barbados and Centrale Bank van Curacao en Sint Maarten, representing both circulation and numismatic coins.
