SF Old Mint: Private Group Tour

The Old Mint is gorgeous from the outside -- let's discover its inner beauty while learning the history of and future plans for this historic building.

They don't have any public weekend tours currently scheduled through July, so I worked with the historical society to create this private group weekend tour.

Meet at the northeast side of the Mint Building
11am: Tour begins
12:15pm: Drinks/snacks at Blue Bottle Coffee

Note: I must leave Blue Bottle Coffee around 12:30pm to meet with the group participating in the St. Francis tour; however, I encourage others to relax/hang out longer, if desired.

If interested, RSVP for the St. Francis: 110th Anniversary Guided Tour and/or the Pacific Mambo Orchestra at SFJAZZ events happening later on the same day.

Official event description
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.

    Made the mistake of taking 101. Got stuck in traffic and ran late. Spent a lot of time searching for the entrance to the building but there doesn't seem to be one. So I left.

    I'm sitting down close to the northeast entrance: I'm on Mint Plaza (just off 5th Street) wearing a red and blue blouse, jeans, gold flats, and a brown LV purse. I'm directly in front of 4 and 6 Mint Plaza.

    Please remember to meet at the northeast side of the building. This is NOT the entrance along 5th Street. I look forward to seeing all of you soon!
