ROYAL CANADIAN MINT

Ottawa


Canadian Mint Making Cuff Links

Because making money is not as profitable as it used to be, the Royal Canadian Mint in Ottawa is diversifying its product line and this year moved into the jewellery market with a set of men's cuff links.

Operating in 1970 for the first time as profit motivated Crown corporation, the management found itself faced with a drastic drop in demand; production of Canadian coins dropped to 339 millions from 630 millions the year before.

The mint's current direct mail advertising brochure lists six different items, including the cuff links plated with gold or rhodium. The initial run of these was cautiously set at 400 and proved to be a wild under-estimate. Selling at $3.50 a set, orders for 25,000 sets have been received so far this year.
