This was an informative and interesting tour. You must pay for parking, and there is parking around the mint. Look for the hourly lot by quiznos. Need to arrive 30 minutes prior and the tour takes 45 min plus time for the gift shop. The security is strict. No bags/purses and belts/pocket items removed for screening. Leave everything in your...

I tried multiple times to get online to secure a reservation, and it was more difficult since I had a narrow window of time. Plan early and be flexible. Know that there is no photography allowed, and you will be searched as thoroughly as at any airport. The US Mint police however are a lot friendlier than the TSA agents.... More

This free tour was well worth it. The tour guide was very informative. Anyone who loves history will like this. I work for a financial institution and this was so insightful! Thank you!

As with other reviews, touring the Denver Mint is interesting, educational and well worth a visit. The tour takes you through the mint’s history and the process of making coins. The tour takes about 45 minutes. The tour is also appropriate for pre-teens or older. There is a small museum to visit while waiting for the tour to begin. The... More

The staff were quite friendly, even as they searched our bags and made us go through the metal detector. Our tour guide gave us a lot of information, delivered with a lot of humor. Even gave me great advice on a coin my Dad had. He had a great voice that could be heard by the whole group. We were,... More

My wife, 8 yr. old daughter and I visited the U.S. Mint on Thursday, Oct. 13, 2016 for the 9:30 a.m. tour. I played the "stay up late" game exactly 30 days ahead of time in order to get reservations for our desired date & time and wound up getting reservations. We arrived in downtown Denver a little early to... More

The sign up to get on this free tour is almost like getting a golden ticket to the Wonka Factory (but as a secure Federal facility I get why!). If you can hang in there with their reservation system, it is really a neat tour. We did get to see coins being made the day we went. The tour guide... More

Just like most things it runs, the government manages to take a simple tour and act like it is a big inconvenience for them. You have to make advance reservations and the reservation system is often offline or unavailable. I love my country but loathe the system. If this was a private company, the customer service alone would drive them... More

I was finally able to score reservations on the day and time I was waiting for and I am really glad I did not give up. It is an excellent tour, very informative.

Reservations are required and you must arrive 30 minutes in advance for screening. Our tour guide Tom was fantastic. He explained the entire process and provided some funny jokes. The tour is free and really is a must see while in Denver. Check out US Mint website for lots of additional information.
