Foursquare Tips

  • The US Mint in Denver is one of only six in the country.
  • The mint really knows how to make money up to 50 million coins every day! The tour wont cost you a dime, though, and will show you how dull metal is transformed into glittering pocket change.
  • Opened in the mid-1800s as an Assay Office to change gold and silver found by miners. It wasn't until 1906 that the Denver facility began actually minting coins
  • Arrive early to get a standby ticket...reservations are full 1 month in advance
  • Originally opened in the mid-1800s to change gold and silver found by miners. Not until 1906 that the Denver facility began actually minting coins after being an Assay Office for the interim years.

  • The tour is good. Do it in the morning, so you still have the whole day. Register in advance online.
  • Make sure to reserve a tour. Don't show up like I did and not get a tour of the mint. Reserve online.
  • Security was super tight. Kinda killed the fun of the tour. They won't let you in if you aren't 20-30 before your tour. They freak out about purses. But strangely cameras are ok if you don't use them
