We monitored the website carefully to schedule the tour about 30 days prior to our visit. Supposedly 6 tours offered daily, Monday through Thursday. We reserved a 8:00 am tour. The early time probably helped finding nearby street parking with a 2 hour meter at $1.00 per hour. The screening of all metal and pocket items occurs before entry. Visitors... More

You must book in advance as you will not be allowed on a tour by just turning up. Luckily I only booked about 12 hours in advance and easily got on a tour. You must leave bags in your vehicle or hotel as you will not be allowed them inside. You can take a camera inside but you must not... More

This is the second time I have visited the Denver Mint in the many years I have lived in Colorado. The first time they were remodeling so we didn't get the complete tour. It's worth going to. IMPORTANT: Make advance reservations as you may not get in if you just show up, so don't waste your time. Secondly no type... More

I know more about coins than I ever thought about before. Never knew how coins were made, cost of producing them and I got to see them being made as well. The tour guide was very good!

You need to reserve your tour of the U.S. Mint (us mint.gov), but it is well worth it if you want to know about our coin curancy and its history. From its start in the 1700s to currant coins you get to see coins in production and learn about the different production methods through out our history. There is no... More

When in the area, don't miss the Mint. The building itself is very interesting. It's Gran Hallway is lovely with murals, stained glass, glass light fixtures and marble flooring. The guided tours are very interesting and you get to see how coins are made. Be aware that you can take in only a small hand sized wallet or coin purse.... More

The tour here is very well done and the areas for tourists are comfortable and informative during the time you wait for your tour to begin. I had no interest in visiting here, but now I would include this on my must-sees for anyone who visits me here in Denver.
