Philadelphia and Denver Tours

The Denver Mint

The United States Mint offers tours in its Philadelphia and Denver locations.  At both facilities, the tours are free.  Touring the United States Mint is a fascinating experience for those of all ages and one that will be remembered for a lifetime.  Tours cover both the present state of coin manufacturing as well as the history of the Mint.  Learn about the craftsmanship required at all stages of the minting process, from the original designs and sculptures to the actual striking of the coins.  Click on the photo from either city for details on hours, addresses, and how to tour the facility. Brochures are also available at each facility and can be downloaded as PDFs. Get the Philadelphia brochure (3.3 mb) | Denver brochure (369 kb).

The Philadelphia Mint

Both of the Mint locations welcome school and youth groups (grades kindergarten through 12), and organized military and veteran groups and are wheelchair accessible.  At the Philadelphia Mint facility, a wheelchair is also available for individuals who need assistance and office personnel can provide private tours to handicapped or older individuals who request assistance.

Virtual Tour

The United States Mint staff is pleased to present a Virtual Tour of its facilities.  Come inside as we illustrate how the United States Mint fulfills its mission to make, sell, and protect United States circulating coins.  We'll describe the design process and show you around the engraving rooms and production floors.

The United States Mint Virtual Tour focuses on how the United States Mint makes circulating coins.  Although the Virtual Tour may depict sights and sounds from facilities such as those in Philadelphia and Denver, it does not intend to replicate specific plants or processes exactly.  Instead, the Virtual Tour offers a general overview of how the United States Mint designs and manufactures its products.
