Denver Mint Tours

Denver Mint
The Denver Mint is one of a handful of facilities that produces US currency, and one of only two (along with the Philadelphia Mint) that offers tours to the public. Visitors can tour the massive Renaissance-style 1904 mint building to glimpse the coin-making process, explore exhibits on the history of money, or purchase authentic currency and commemorative coins in the gift shop. 

The Basics
The United States Mint in Denver offers free tours for adults and kids over the age of seven. Tickets are distributed on a first-come, first-served basis for six tours daily, and tickets can only be picked up for that day. Security is tight in the building, so adults are expected to carry photo identification, and all visitors are subject to security screenings. Those who simply want to take in the impressive architecture from the outside can see the mint as part of a sightseeing tour of Denver.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • The Denver Mint tour is a must for history buffs.
  • Tours of the mint last approximately 45 minutes.
  • Arrive as early as possible to secure tickets, particularly during peak travel times.
  • Photography is not permitted while on the tour, and cell phones must be turned off.
  • Prohibited items include handbags, purses, backpacks, and strollers; no storage is provided, so be sure to leave these items in your hotel or the trunk of your car.
  • The mint facilities are ADA accessible.

How to Get There
The Denver Mint is located off I-25 from exit 210A. Parking is available at meters and area public lots. 

When to Get There
Tickets for the Denver Mint tour are limited, and during peak travel times—spring and summer vacation, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and winter break—they often run out early. Plan to arrive before the ticket booth opens at 7am to secure your tickets; tours are available Monday to Thursday.

Denver Mint by the Numbers
The Denver Mint went into operation in 1906 and produced some 167 million gold and silver coins in its first year. Today, the mint sometimes exceeds 50 million coins per day, and it also houses the largest stash of gold bars in the nation.
