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.

We decided to do this tour when had some free time and were in the neighborhood. We really enjoyed it! It's a self guided tour and it's free. They take you down a long hallway that's above the factory where you can look through windows....More

I brought my kids and they loved it. They were able to see from start to finish how a coin is made. A lot of interactive screens.

The tour was free and very informative. You get a chance to learn a lot about the way the process works with a great view of the working machinery. They don't allow photography so don't be surprised.

Take the kids or go alone. This is a very good lesson, up close and personal, in how our coins are minted. Learn the lengthy minting process then watch coins being made.

This is actually the 4th Mint in Philadelphia's History. Entrance is free. We enjoyed viewing the actual manufacturing process of coins. No photography is allowed. They also make various medals at this mint that are quite interesting to see. I would recommend a visit.

It's a self-guided tour of the world's largest mint. Their primary mission is minting everyday pennies, nickels dimes and quarters, but they also do gold and silver and military medals. Although you get to see much of the production area, you do NOT get to...More
