I always knew that a penny with the letter "D" under the date came from the Denver Mint. Now I know why you don't see that letter anymore. The Denver Mint is the only mint... read more

Guards and staff were very rude to my out of town guests. Very disappointing from a government agency, especially one representing a great city like Denver.🙁

I was amazed to find out how popular this attraction was. You have to make a reservation and time slots open 30 days out from your desired date. They fill up FAST! There was a good 30 people in our tour. You have to go through ~tsa style security minus the shoes coming off. Then you get to deal with... More

My wife and I visited back in March while in town for a hockey game. We made our reservations several months in advance, as this was something both of us were really looking forward to seeing. As long as you take a look at the website ahead of time and follow instructions, you shouldn't have any problems going on this... More

I always knew that a penny with the letter "D" under the date came from the Denver Mint. Now I know why you don't see that letter anymore. The Denver Mint is the only mint that makes our pennies, nickels, dimes and quarters. The San Francisco and Philadelphia mints make other coins. To begin this tour you will have to... More

It's free and it is worth the time. Very interesting to see the process of coins being made. Had no issues with making reservation the morning of the tour like other stated.

Worth hitting up if your in Denver. It is a good look into the history of our money and how it is made. I definitely learned a few things on this 45 min tour. You need to make a reservation online prior to going. This is a federal building and has strict security rules. I would read what you can... More

An educational and interesting tour given by guides who really know the history of our money. Be sure to read the do's and don'ts before coming. Even purses are not allowed and a couple of women were made to return to their cars to leave purses behind.

There's no place to park, you have to be there way early, and wait outside on the sidewalk. And then you have to show your reservation number, agree to their rules (which includes no purses), and pass through a hypersensitive metal detector. Then you get a free penny and an impersonal factory walk-through tour with competitive question and answer spells.... More

Really cool.. fun... just book your reservation in advance, and show up a good 15-20 minutes before the tour and enjoy it. Pretty cool for free... they have $50B in gold there, and make 17B coins a year! Crazy!
