Following in the footsteps of a guide, come and discover the various facets of the Monnaie de Paris: temple of coinage, factory, royal palace and museum.

Your guide will introduce you to the skills of our artists and artisans, who produce many works of art in steel. From its extraction to its transformation, the metal is magically brought to life in their hands, as they create coins and medals, bronzes and decorations.

Here, you can touch, feel and listen to gain an understanding of the fabulous world of ‘bread’, ‘bucks’, ‘loot’!

Whether you are an engineer, a novice coin collector or a coin expert, an artist, an economist or a rookie, you will leave as ‘rich as Croesus’ after filling up your knowledge bank on a tour packed with history, science, economics and art.
