History

The Company was created in early June 2019, when the current monarch, Aidan I found it fascinating to clean and refurbish old mint, including types that were not pressed any more. He began to experiment with different methods of cleaning, Lemon juice, Dish Soap, and even a pencil eraser, then he discovered that when he rubbed the coin fast against a wire brush or a grill brush, the penny would become clean and look new (only if the penny did not have existing cracks of marks). After he did this to around four coins all different years and using different medal types, he decided to create a Mint company in the Kingdom of Quebec and sell coins online, thus the Royal Quebecois Mint was formed.

In around September 2019, Aidan began to realize how the methods he was using was damaging expensive coins so he began using safe methods of cleaning and coin dipping.
