As close to the proverbial money-tree as you'll get. The U.S. Mint turns out 1.5 million coins per hour, and you can see how they do it.

Really nice security and staff. Fun and informative tour. Lots of good information, and views of the minting floor. It looks small as you enter, but as you go up and into the factory tour part of it, you realize that it is much bigger...More

Free to learn about the history of the US government making coins. Many historic coins, coin making tools and historic pieces are on display. A 45 minute self-guided tour is the way you go. A gift shop is inside. Easy walks through the informative displays...More

One of the staples of not only Philly but America, holistically. Being a typical America I have coins and spend them or throw them in my coin jar and don’t think twice. The Mint highlights the history of coins and takes visitors down a journey...More

First things first, no photos allowed in the Mint. Despite that, we had a great time learning how coins and medals are made and we could also see the process looking down onto the production floor. The gift shop has a lot of collectible coins...More

Very interesting displays and explanations of the process, looking out onto the production floor and seeing all the coins going through the machines was fascinating.

My sister and I did the self guided walk through of the mint. Watching the process was fascinating. You cannot take pictures inside but there is a lot to see. There is a gift shop where you can buy different coins.

We hadn't planned on visiting the Mint but walked past and noticed that there were tours. It was late in the day and we managed a 30min trip. The site includes a store, some information/film exhibits and view onto the factory area of the Mint....More

We have done a tour of the Federal Bureau of Engraving and Printing in DC and loved it, so The Mint was a must see for us. It wasn’t quite as interesting as Engraving and Printing but still worth seeing nonetheless. It’s neat to see...More
