As close to the proverbial money-tree as you'll get. The U.S. Mint turns out 1.5 million coins per hour, and you can see how they do it.

Enjoyed 90 minute visit at this site near Independence Hall and US Constitution Museum. Self- guided tour of coin minting process as you walk above presses and is interesting to parents and kids alike. Good gift shop. Very friendly staff.

Take the time using your Philadelphia pass to view the world's largest mint of coins. Be surprised that not only does the mint do the pennies, nickels, dimes and quarters but also commemorative medals such as the Purple Heart. Take the tour through the viewing gallery to see the entire process laid out and have your picture taken next to... More

Great for family's or anyone. Learned and see how money is made! Great walking tour with lots to see. Couldn't take photos inside but it was very interesting to see how coins are made from the start of the art design to the milling of the coins themselves.

This is a free walking tour that has nice interactive exhibits that show you how the money is made. We thought it was interesting in how the money used to be made as to how it is mass produced now. The tour takes about an hour but could take longer if you took your time on the interactive exhibits.

I've been to this mint on numerous occasions and it's always interesting. To my surprise, the mint was open on the weekend (only during the summer) so I was able to take my granddaughter on the tour. Although the presses were not running, she was still able to visualize the process. The exhibits and flow of the self-guided tour are... More

We spent about an hour in the Mint and the whole family loved it! The guards at the entrance were very friendly (don't forget ID for adults!). It was very educative for all of us, youngest to oldest. Everything is labelled so you know at all times what you are looking at. We even got the most recent four state... More

My husband and I toured the U.S. Mint. One of four remaining in the U.S. and great history. The description provided during the manufacturing tour was just excellent and very interesting. Best thing is that it is free and good for all ages-kids and adults. You do have to show a photo id, go through security and absolutely no photos... More

This tour was suggested in our duck tour and we enjoyed it. Security at the door, and you are not permitted to take photographs at the self directed tour upstairs. At the entry is a gift shop with interesting items. Upstairs, visitors learn about how currency is made with an opportunity to watch short films about the history and many... More

FREE self-guided walking tour through the history of our money. Several interactive things to do for children (and adults as well, yes, we saw you) Watching stop by step as coinage was made and looking at the statistics, coin collections was a unique experience. It's location is also a huge plus - surrounded by the Liberty Bell, Constitution Center, the... More
