Fodor's Expert Review U.S. Mint

Denver Government Building
US Mint, Denver, Colorado

Tour this facility to catch a glimpse of the coin-making process, as presses spit out thousands of coins a minute. There are also exhibits on the history of money and a restored version of Denver's original mint prior to numerous expansions. More than 14 billion coins are minted yearly, and the nation's second-largest hoard of gold is stashed away here. To schedule a tour and prepare for your visit (there are strict security guidelines), visit the Mint's website. Reservations are required for all tours, which are guided, free, and available most weekdays from 8 to 3:30. The gift shop, which sells authentic coins and currency, is in the Tremont Center, across Colfax Avenue from the Mint.
