    I'll try to go to the Philly mint this year. We did a tour precovid and loved it.

    That is definitely on my list of places I want to visit.

    Did SF do tours pre-Covid? I am going through there later this year. I have never done Philly or Denver, but I did visit Carson City about 20 years ago. The tour of the BEP in DC was also very cool.

    Nothing is as expensive as free money.

    I have not done the tour in Philly... though I have been to Philadelphia often.... always on business or some other focus and not enough time. Actually, the same goes for Denver and San Francisco. Maybe next trip. Cheers, RickO

    I did the mint tour in Denver in 1966. Loved it.
    I was already collecting proof sets and was disappointed that all that was being sold were the Special Mint Sets.

    Someday, I'll go to Philly and take the tour.
