Great place and a lot of fun! Shows the whole process of how coins are made. Great for a family trip or a coin expert.
Last summer, I went on a family trip to the Philadelphia Mint. It was a wonderful experience. They show the process followed to make coins. It’s very interesting for children as well. Five Stars
We had a really nice time at the mint. My children really took a liking to "my world" after our visit.
I live just a short walk from the mint, it's amazing that it's open six days a week for free, you can go watch them make coins all day if you like. You can't beat free.

We did this on a whim and to take up a little time. I am SO glad we did. It was all about how they make coins. Describes all of the processes of making different coins and medals. Seeing the process in person was very cool.
Very surprising find! I've driven past the other two mints in the country, but never attempted to go in. We were surprised to find that we could visit a museum and tour the facility! It was very interesting!!
After going to the Denver Mint, we were 50/50 on also going to this one. We are very glad we did. This history here is incredible, the gift ship supplied well for amateurs and serious numismatics alike. The tour is self guided and you can explore at your own pace. We lingered and watch the processes for a while. Overall we spent about an hour and a half here, but most people spend 45 minutes per the guide.
They give really fun and interesting free tours. There's a floor about the history of the Mint and then a floor that explains the process of making coins and lets you overlook the factory. Everyone was incredibly kind from security to the front desk to the gift shop staff. This is honestly the one of the best free tours I've taken and I can see kids loving it.
We just happened across the US Mint and we're ecstatic to go inside. You really learn a lot!! Definitely worth a stop and it's free!
