  • I rated it 3 stars because you have to give it a numerical rating, but we were unable to visit the mint. Tickets are on a first come, first served basis and you have to arrive early in the morning to ...  more »
  • You can get a good impression, as coins and the leadership is very informative, as it is used to stop in the United States! The U.S. Mint is still fairly centrally located and there is enough parking in the surrounding area. Of course one must not let out shop the gift, specially for coin collectors there is a great uni rich selection direct from the "manufacturer" here!

  • This is a great tour for everyone. You need to get there early to make sure you get tickets for that days' tour. They are limited. Very informative and a one of a kind experience.  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.
