Monnaie de Paris, the first and last factory in Paris, has age-old expertise that it employs with vitality and creativity. As the heir to over twelve centuries of tradition, it is in charge of minting current coinage. It also produces collector coins in gold and silver, medals, official decorations, fine bronzes and jewellery.

With their exceptional expertise, Monnaie de Paris' craftsmen create works of art in keeping with the French rules of excellence and using traditional methods handed down at the establishment.

All styles and periods are engraved in metal. Monnaie de Paris entrusts the greatest artists of the day with its products and maintains an on-going dialogue with contemporary creation.

Monnaie de Paris holds the exclusive right to mint French euro coins. It also mints certain foreign currencies, whether in totality (Luxembourg, Monaco, Malta, etc.) or in part (Greece, Bangladesh, etc.). br />

Since 2007, Monnaie de Paris has undertaken a transformation called MétaLmorphoses

This project will make Monnaie de Paris the first site in the world to propose a prestigious cultural, commercial and gastronomic offer to its visitors based on its artistic trades. A place for discovery and relaxation, leisure and well-being, a centre of excellence and attractiveness on the banks of the Seine, classified as a world heritage site by UNESCO

Since October 2014, this welcoming, lively site that is open to the city has been proposing temporary exhibitions and prestigious events. Starting at the end of 2016, this new programme will reflect an experiential journey to discover its crafts workshops and the treasures of its collections that had not been exposed before.
