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.

This is a well put together self guided tour. It is the biggest mint I have toured and my favorite. There is a metal detector at the main door that might slow you down a bit... read more

I am not sure everyone would be as excited with this tour as we were, but we loved it. My ten year old son had a great time. We are into manufacturing and coin collecting, so this was great. We took our time and spent a while in the gift shop. Even with our slow pace we were done in... More

This is a well put together self guided tour. It is the biggest mint I have toured and my favorite. There is a metal detector at the main door that might slow you down a bit, but then you set the pace for the rest of the tour. There are windows looking down onto the work floor, so you get... More

I enjoyed the Mint - it was very interesting. The only thing I didn't like was having to follow a set path. I like to wander around when I am looking at things. It's also an awful lot of walking so be prepared.

The tour is basically a walk-thru and look down into the machine rooms. Would have like to have seen more "hands-on" or Up-close activities. Maybe have someone talk. Note: You can go in the gift shop to purchase coins etc. without going on the tour. I will just do that next time.

The tour of the mint is very interesting. It is a long walking tour through the hallway of the making of the coins. But, a great learning experience.

I work here. I'm a machinist. We have some great things going on. Check out the visitors center which is free to the public along with a really nice interactive tour. Of all the press room floors. There is also a store where you can purchase coins and other Mint novelties.

A very interesting self guided tour. Free to the public. Be sure to bring an ID (for adults) to present to the guard at the door. It is wheel chair accessible (elevators). Lots of historical artifacts to view along the route. A well stocked shop at the end of the tour. Well worth the stop. Leave at least 1.5 hours... More

See how US coins are made....the history and the process. Free admission,about an hour to walk through, and a great gift shop. Odd they won't let you take photos inside.

Good views of the coin making process. Just enough history as not to overwhelm you. Great gift shop for the coin buff.
