Facilities, Tours and Sales Counters.


More than 2,800 employees work at six United States Mint facilities. One facility is a depository, one is Headquarters, and four produce coin products.  In managing its facilities, the United States Mint has a program of improving sustainability regarding energy and the environment.


Touring the United States Mint is a fascinating experience for all ages and one to remember for a lifetime.  Tours cover the present state of coin manufacturing and the history of the Mint.  Visitors 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.

If you aren't near Philadelphia or Denver where you can take a real tour, you can see the coin-making process online on our How Coins Are Made page.
