The U.S. Mint was founded in 1792 and the Denver Mint opened in 1863. If you've never visited a U.S. Mint, take a tour at the facility in Denver where coins are produced and gold and silver bullion stored. The tours are geared for ages seven and older and provide fascinating insight and fun facts about the history of coin production and the process of making the money we use every day. Tours are offered Monday through Thursday between the hours of 8 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. They're best when production is in process but there is no guarantee that production will be up and running during every tour. Don't skip the Mint's gift shop with its fun, educational items, including books and money-themed gifts. Reservations are required for 45-minute tours, which can be booked online or by phone up to 90 days in advance--and they do fill.
