I really enjoyed seeing the process of coin production. It's very informative, including some coin history. I'm a senior, but this tour is good for the whole family. You're going to want to take home some of the production!

A tour of the mint is great value for your money. Pun intended! It is informative and very interesting. You will learn things about our currency that you did not know and about other currencies as well. It is well worth the time.
