The Mint is quiet, across the street from Benjamin Franklin's cemetery. The mint can be visited from Monday to Saturday. It closes at 5:00 p.m. and is not allowed to take pictures after entering. You can visit the corridor, see the workshop of the mint on the spot, and see the process of coin production on the assembly line. Look at the finished product. It's a penny for casting. There are souvenir shops at the exit, where you can buy some souvenirs for collection.
When you come to Philadelphia, please don't miss the American Mint. Since the United States opened its ports, the vast majority of the currencies in circulation in the United States have been made here. The production line here is unavoidably displayed to the public, but photographs are not allowed inside. Visit the line in the upper layer of the factory, all glass windows, clearly see the factory's production line, can not see the inside of the machine, it does not matter, many electronic touch screens are in front of you, want to see which part, click on the screen, pop up video or pictures. There are also touching areas for each coin, with projection and coin pop-up. Appreciate the undisguised and generous style of the United States.
It's a free attraction. It's great. You can see how coins are made step by step. You can also see the changes of the past coins to the present coins in every period, and each stage is introduced. But we are in a hurry on this trip. I hope we can stay a little longer.
Two places were visited in Philadelphia. One was the Mint, an independent hall. The first floor is the exhibition hall and the Sales Department of tourist souvenirs. There are many sets of commemorative coins for sale. The second floor is a viewing corridor. It can actually see the coin line and the workers in operation, mainly coins and no paper money. You can't take pictures inside.
The Philadelphia Mint Office is the first and main Mint office in the United States. It needs a simple security check. It will tell you that you can't take any photos inside. It's better to put your mobile phone in your bag. There are three floors in it. The first floor lobby and souvenir center. The second floor is the chronology of history, interactive art, and the third floor is the introduction of factory guides. From design, production, inspection, transportation. There are all kinds of commemorative coins. They are very, very interesting and free. It's worth going to Philadelphia.
Three major American mints "San Francisco S, Denver D, one of Philadelphia P. All U.S. dollar coins with P inscribed on them are made at the Philadelphia Mint. It's very close to the Liberty Bell and the Independence Palace. It is a spectacular mint with a long history and detailed process description. Souvenir stores sell all kinds of dollar commemorative coins with refined coins, which are slightly expensive but relatively complete in variety. It should be the only Mint in the United States to visit. Coin collectors go to scenic spots in Philadelphia.
It's free to visit, but those backpacks are not allowed to be brought in, and security checks will be more stringent. When you go in, you can see the introduction of American coins, and you can see all kinds of coins in a row. You can also see the coin line, a lot of brass cents, very brainwashed oh very interesting to see the scenes I saw in the movie before.
