You can tour the US Mint where they make money!

You can tour the US Mint, where they make coins and commemorative coins.

It was established in 1906 as a branch for the United States, where coin presses make coins of various sizes for release to the American public. The raw gold and silver mostly came fro the nearby Cripple Creek mining district.
