The Philadelphia Mint that you see now is the fourth mint, but the most efficient. The first Mint in the United States was built only 100 years from this building. On your visit to the Philadelphia Mint you will be able to see the first coin pressed used in 1792! The first one million coins minted here took about three years to make, but today it takes only half an hour.

Use the Philadelphia Mint's Self Guided Tour as you visit the building.
