This tour was very interesting and informative. Well organized and the tour guide kept our interest. We were concerned our five year old would get bored but he loved it. They are very serious about security so when they say don't bring anything with you they mean it! Gift shop had cool uncirculated coins you can buy at the end... More

The tour is free, but you must make reservations online well in advance. The maximum is 3 months ahead of time, and registration opens up at midnight eastern time. I thought that was... More

That being said we were able to look around in the gift shop and when I asked if they had any coin sets from previous years (I was looking for the years our grandsons were born) the attendant suggested that I check with...

The mint tour is fun, informative and quick. However, check the schedule on its website to find availability. Chance to buy mint sets at the end of the tour in the store.
