The US Mint tour in Denver is definitely worth your time. Reservations for the tour are required. The tour is brief but full of history and interesting information. The tour is free. We enjoyed the tour as well as the gift shop. In the gift shop we were able to find the circulated National Park quarters (2010-present) as well as the newest National Park quarter. The gift shop is separate from the tour so you can browse before and after the tour.
