This free activity is great if you are interest in coins and how they are made. It is worth a visit if you have time. However, I would visit Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell first you have limited tie.

An interesting view of coin making! (The paper money is not made here.) We enjoyed the well diagramed, self-guided tour through the mint. There were several families in attendance and the children seemed to thoroughly enjoy themselves.
