Although this is a 45 minute tour (after a 30 minute holding time to begin the tour it could be done in 15 minutes, you basically move through 3 rooms, the tour guides (Joe and Michael were amazing) talk a few minutes in each area, and than you can look at the production floor. We were able to see pennies and dimes pressed.
Do not bring children under the age of about 7, it does not move fast enough for that age.
You have to go through full security, they brag its better security than TSA. The guard that oversees going through the scanning was so rude to one man in our group that people complained to the tour guides. It was an older man and I don't think he heard very well, the guard actually yelled at him and asked if he was "going to be a problem and maybe I should throw you out now". The man was humiliated and I think I would have left. Hope at the end of the day the guard feels remorse over the way he treated an elderly person, it was totally unnecessary.
Regarding reservations - be sure to check back if your date is full, the times and availability seem to change, I only booked this 6 days ahead and got the time we wanted.
