Best of Philly

2015 Free Tour

The United States Mint

The fascinating (and totally free!) self-guided tour gives you a bird’s-eye view of the actual, live coin-making process from 40 feet above the factory floor where some 715 million quarters were produced last year. It’s the perfect Independence Mall destination for those of us who aren’t tourists.
