The Philadelphia Mint has experienced four historical changes, four times changed its site and four times rebuilt.
At the corner of Independence Square, looking towards the Liberty Bell Tower. Very simple concrete building. This is the production workshop of American coins. Various coins are also displayed inside. Walking on the second floor to visit the assembly line, unfortunately it is not possible to take pictures.
The huge place of the American Mint shovel is also a legal place to print money in several different cities in the United States, and the Mint is also a history of many years, with a lot of security, the outside of the visit can be free.
The American Mint is a famous landmark in Philadelphia, it is a great place to go with kids, souvenir shop is worth a visit, not far from the downtown park, the shape is quite beautiful, no tickets are required, but you need to have a photo ID (such as passport).
Arriving in Philadelphia, you can't miss the American Mint. Most of the money in circulation in the United States has been made here since the beginning of the American operation. The production lines are unscrupulously displayed to the public, but no photographs are allowed inside. The line is on the upper floor of the factory, full glass windows, clearly see the factory production line, not the machine inside? Never mind, many electronic touch screens are in front of you, want to see where, click on the screen, pop up video or pictures. There are touch areas for each coin, hand in, projection and coin popping up... admiring the undisguised, generous style of the United States.
American mint, quiet around, across the road from Benjamin Franklin's graveyard. Mint can be visited Monday to Saturday, closed at 5 p.m., no photographs allowed after entering. Through the corridor, the site to see the mint workshop, the process of the assembly line to produce coins. The finished product looks like a mint. There is also a souvenir shop at the exit where you can buy some souvenir collections.
