Old Mint Tours

Get a look inside the Old Mint. SFMHS guides will discuss the history of the building, the plans for the facility, and show you the progress we have made so far. Note: Production of coins ceased at The Old Mint in 1937, and there are no coins or coin-making equipment on display.

Tours will begin on the northeast side of the Mint Building at Mint Plaza (closer to Market Street).

The maximum group size for regularly scheduled tours is 6 persons. Larger groups are encouraged to schedule private tours so as to allow the maximum number of parties to participate in the regular tours.

Mint Tours are free to SFMHS members. Non-members may join the tour for $10, payable at the time of the tour. Tours are are limited based on the availability of docents, and reservations are required. To reserve a space, send an email to This email address is being protected from spambots.
