22 Denver United States Mint in Denver, Colorado

During the mid-19th century Colorado Gold Rush, a private mint opened in Denver to convert prospectors’ gold dust into Pikes Peak Gold coins. In 1862, the U.S. Government purchased Clark & Company and transformed their operations into the Denver Mint. In 1897, the plant was replaced with the existing one on West Colfax Avenue. It is fun to tour the world’s oldest and largest producer of coins.
