Owner description: 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.

They've just recently reopened for tours, and it's worth going. You can line up for the 9AM opening on week days and get in for free. Just be prepared- NO CAMERAS ARE ALLOWED IN THE MINT! If you check their web site, you're lucky that they let you wear shoes, pants and a shirt. Many things are banned, but cameras are usually the biggest problem. There is no place to put them, so plan ahead. As always, a gift shop is inside where you can look at and buy lots of monetary memorabilia.

We knew we needed approval and reservations through our local senator in order to get into the Mint - especially as we were a family of 10 (relatives from out of the state came too). We obtained the necessary approval (so we thought) and were told to be at the Mint entrance at a certain time and date. When we arrived, a security guard came out to meet us and checked our photo I.D.'s - much to our dismay, he only had half of our groups names and proceeded to give us a hard time about entering for the tour. He eventually let us in and we had a very knowledgable tour guide and an interesting walk around the facility.
Unfortunately, not much was going on with the actual "minting" of coins that day but, we learned a lot anyway. Our senator's secretary had told us we didn't need any paperwork from their office to get in but hindsight teaches us to always get something in print to show at the door!
