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.

Really interesting. Expect your bags to be searched by X-ray and you need to walk through a metal detector. Follow the route around and learn the history of coin making before watching the factory in action.

We went during the week, and we got to see the workers work as we toured. It is interesting to see the process of coin making, but there is a lot of reading. This was difficult to do since kids were running around and constantly...More

Luckily as you walk 40 ft above the mint floor, there are SO many things to read detailing the minting process, that you get a very good idea of it even if not much is going on or if like on the day we went,...More

My grandkids, ages 9-12 loved this opportunity to see how our coins are made. It was a highlight of our family trip to Philadelphia.

This was a very nice tour to see how the money was printed. No cameras are allowed in the facility so you cannot see what is in it. Although the history of how coins are made and the process is very interesting.

You must pass through security (metal detectors) before going on a free walk through "tour" which consists of recordings, static displays and looking down at the floor to watch the process while trying to figure out what you are seeing. Truly wish it was guided...More

very easy and well laid out to see the process of making the coins. Wish you could buy unique items there that you could not get online. Not even rolls of coins. Not even a fresh quarter like at the national reserve down the road....More

This free activity is great if you are interest in coins and how they are made. It is worth a visit if you have time. However, I would visit Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell first you have limited tie.

They work around the clock. However, whether there is a lot of people working on the production floor or not will not impact the value of your visit.

No tickets, but when you go up you get in line and the adults show their photo id's and then the guard lets you in. Then you go through a metal detector and have to put all your belongings on a conveyor belt to be scanned.
