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.

The third floor of the mint has a self guided tour over the coin / medal manufacturing facility. It is very interesting and actually very cool, with plenty of video / reading material to understand what's going on. Great for families.

A working mint, fascinating to see how coins are made and the history of coins especially in the US. Some great items for sale in the gift shop, different to normal tourist gifts.

Excellent place to visit for individuals or groups, there is information and history for school age children, teenagers and adults. The Philadelphia Mint is the largest coin factory in the world and there is no entrance fee! .

I wish that the production line had been making coins when we were there. We saw people on the factory floors but not really any coins being produced. However there were some interesting exhibits.

Really nice security and staff. Fun and informative tour. Lots of good information, and views of the minting floor. It looks small as you enter, but as you go up and into the factory tour part of it, you realize that it is much bigger...More

Free to learn about the history of the US government making coins. Many historic coins, coin making tools and historic pieces are on display. A 45 minute self-guided tour is the way you go. A gift shop is inside. Easy walks through the informative displays...More

Free entry and easy to locate (on the other side of burial grounds of former US President Benjamin Franklin). Not so Wheel chair friendly (Steps & metal detection arch). Those who love history and little bit of everything,this place is a "must not miss" place...More

One of the staples of not only Philly but America, holistically. Being a typical America I have coins and spend them or throw them in my coin jar and don’t think twice. The Mint highlights the history of coins and takes visitors down a journey...More

First things first, no photos allowed in the Mint. Despite that, we had a great time learning how coins and medals are made and we could also see the process looking down onto the production floor. The gift shop has a lot of collectible coins...More

Yes your luggage will go through security. I am not sure where you could leave it when you actually tour.

They just make coins. There is a place in DC that prints outs the paper money.
