For some reason we had low expectations for this museum but we were wrong. Great exhibits on the history of coin making and casting. Pretty huge museum, with excellent exhibits including hands-on, interactive bits. You even get to strike your own coin on a screw...More

The Musée du Conti / Monnaie de Paris is well worth a visit if you have any sort of interest in coinage. The exhibits include everything from the initial metals used, through the striking process, to the finished coins. There is a video showing the...More

Hello Andrew, Thanks a lot for your visite, and taking time to give us your feedback - the topic about small coins is duly noted ! Have a great day, La Monnaie de Paris

Subodh Gupta's artworks were installed beautifully at the Mint, their bright, shiny brilliance set in the ornate backdrop of the galleries. The history exhibitions on money and the mint were also very interesting
