The U.S. Mint in Philadelphia, established in 1792, is the largest coin factory in the world. Join us on a self-guided tour to learn about the MInt's history and see the current coin design and manufacturing process. Seven Tiffany glass mosaics celebrating the Mint are on display in the Lobby.
We will take the 9:48 train from the EF station, which arrives at Jefferson Station at 10:02, or meet at the library at 9:45 to carpool, or if you prefer, meet us at the Mint (5th and Arch) at about 10:30. Be sure to bring ID, as this is a Federal Building and you will be asked to show it.
Please register here on line or at 267-444-4507 (M-F, 9-6) so we know to look for you.
There is no entrance fee.

Among other inter-active experiences, test your skills at detecting counterfeits, and learn about the new security features on the latest currency.
