Big Money!

This is definitely a site to see!
A must photo-opp for any tourist, especially coin collectors!
Very easy to get to, no fees to get to it, it’s just outside of dynamic earth.

If you’re road-tripping, make sure to add the Loon Dollar Monument in Echo Bay, ON, as well as the Giant Toonie in Campbellford, ON.

Nickel for your thoughts!
Oct 2020
A true Canadian icon, this nickel is a must see when you're in the region. Unfortunately due to Covid, Dynamic Earth is operating under limited hours. But fortunately the nickel is outdoor and accessible for broader hours. It is really impressive and worth the stop.

Over priced

Okay for kids, way over priced, so short 10 minute walk at best. Pumpkins are all plastic very fake.

Canadian Icon

Haven't seen this since i was a kid - still very impressive!! Because we were there during Covid-shutdown, we could go inside (disappointing but understandable). The Big Nickel remains a Canadian icon!!

Fun to see up close

We stopped in Sudbury just to see the Big Nickel. It’s easy to see the Big Nickel from a distance, since it is huge. There were only a few people there, and plenty of parking. Dynamic Earth was closed, but it looked fun from outside. You can learn some history and get some great photos of the nickel. It’s well worth your time, if you’re near Sudbury.

Well, when in Sudbury, you need to come here. It is a short walk from the parking lot and great place for a picture

The Big Nickel
Aug 2020
Was pretty impressed with the size of the Big Nickel. Everything else was closed but there were information boards outside to read and understand about the Nickel industry in Sudbury.

Can't miss

I wish I could add more to my comments besides the great view of an iconic coin but like most other things Dynamic Earth was closed. But it still worth the drive up the hill to see the nickel and take in the view of the Sudbury basin
