“Okay”
Reviewed 9 March 2012

Not a whole lot going on at the mint, although we did go when there was no coin production.

We didn't have to pay for the guided tour, which is good, because the gentleman working at the gift shop essentially said the guided tour is just a staff member who has memorized the signage.

It was nice to see, but nothing special, really. If you're into collecting, it may be a different story for you.

“Great For Everyone”
Reviewed 17 February 2012

The spoken tour is very informative and non formal. There is an interactive type small museum and a very nice gift shop. The grounds are lovey. No food available.

“Price is Right”
Reviewed 10 February 2012

It's an inexpensive place to visit that allows you to see coins being made. Government building well set up for viewing with grounds that are amazing. Worth visiting once just to see the procedure and perhaps get inspired if you are a budding coin collector.
