  • Very interesting watching and learning how US Coins get made. Security is tight do the fact that the building is also home to billions of dollars in gold!  more »
  • We attempted to visit multiple times during our visit but could never get a ticket. You must be in line by 8:30 in the morning on the days they are handing out tickets. We failed at each attempt. Goin...  more »

  • This free tour is informative and fun. You need to obtain a ticket before the tour and then show up a half hour before the tour starts. No picture taking is allowed in the building. You will see displays of historic information and coinage as well as the mint making the coins. You will come home with a free sample. Tickets can be obtained as early as 7 a.m.
  • Just cool for the fact that they coin money here. Be sure to read the website about what is allowed inside, it is a federal building and there are no exceptions! The tour does seem a bit longer than is necessary, but we were lucky enough to catch them minting the 2018 $1 coins in preparation for release next year. The old equipment on display and some of the melted down defectives and ‘waffled’ coins were really interesting. Can’t beat it for free!
  • I had a great visit at the Denver Mint on September 11th, 2017. It is one of only two mints in the entire U.S. that you are able to tour.The tour was informative and fun. Our guide was knowledgeable and pleasant. I highly recommend taking this tour. I suggest getting there early in the morning to ensure that you get tickets. I got in line at 6:15 am and was the 8th person in line. I had no problems getting tickets to any of the tour times available throughout the day. The doors open at 7 and the first tour is at 8am. It takes about 45 minutes and drops off in the cool gift shop.
  • Ok here's what I can tell you. If you aren't willing to get there early, like before 10am to get tickets don't bother going. I got there at 10 and they only had the last tour available. If you aren't willing to not have your purse or bag, or don't have a place to store them then don't bother. There's no place close to store your items. My friend was livid about not being able to bring her purse or cigarettes. Other than it was a nice your. Not a long one but interesting things to see and a lot to learn.
  • I loved visiting and learning about currency. If you can tour it you should do it.

Where to stay in Denver

For a touch of class near all Denver's major attractions, book a room at one of the city's historical hotels, built during the late-19th century silver rush. Denver's oldest hotels feature opulent oak furnishings, silver chandeliers, and frescoed walls, as well as spacious rooms packed with high-tech gadgets. If you're planning your visit on a limited budget, consider the affordable hostels and bed and breakfasts located outside the central part of town. Alternatively, you can also stay at one of the mid-range hotels near the airport.
