The Museum itself is in a nice old building. The Shop sells modern NCLT commemorative coins
some coin packs and currency notes in folders.

Thanks, I indeed visited it and strolled through the museum too. The shop is really a desk in the corner and the guy showed me a list of available coins. Once I picked them, he simply headed to the steel cupboards and took them out for me. Far cry from the RCM boutique in Ottawa, but I was the only one there and so I felt like I got a VIP treatment. One thing to keep in mind is that only cash is accepted over there.
