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.

Loved this. Fascinating. Wish we’d gone earlier and could have taken our time and done the tour. My favorite thing in Philly.

Free exhibit. Self guided tour. Great explanation of the entire process from catching to coining to bagging. You can see the machines working! It’s brilliant !

I am so upset I went on MDW on a Saturday. I didn't get to see the factory working. That would've really made this awesome! My fault though. I cannot take off work during the week. This was the first time to the mint. I...More

A good way to spend an hour (especially on a rainy day like it was when we were there, and especially as entry is free) Some good historical information and artefacts and interesting to witness how coins are made in real time

We toured the facility on the Sunday of Memorial-day weekend with my precocious 9 year-old daughter and developmentally-delayed and very active 6 year-old son. The building was nearly empty which made it great for us! I would guess not many people knew it was open....More

It was raining out, so this was a great place to duck into for an hour and get a little education on how coins are made. It's a self-guided tour. Lots of school kids were there and uninterested, but we enjoyed looking down on the...More

A fun way to see how American coins are made. Philadelphia had the first mint in the country. No free samples, alas.

Enjoyed the entire exhibit. They went step by step and gave visuals, touchy-feely interaction and we got to actually view them in the process of “making” money! Loved the gift shop - small but enough. The tour is self-guided and has a short video at...More
