Canada at Expo 70 - Help Requested

Recommended Posts

I am starting to research Canada's participation in Expo 70 and was wondering if anyone knew whether the Royal Canadian Mint was a part of Canada's pavilion.

Also, is their a "best" reference guide to the Expo that I should seek out?

Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.

The RCM's book Striking Impressions says that 5,000 Expo '70 medals were minted in Ottawa.  It doesn't say which medals, but I suspect that they were the Ontario pavilion medals, whose fabric is unlike most Expo 70 medals.  I have also seen special coin sets of the 1970 British Columbia dollar designed for sale in Japan.  So it sounds like there was at least a sales counter for the RCM there.  I have a copy of the Expo 70 official guide that my father bought when we visited there.  It's good for general information but gives very little data on collectibles.
