YOUR EXPERIENCE

DISCOVER the astounding palace and factory in the very heart of Paris, commissioned by Louis XV and transformed through a ten-year renovation into a prestigious site with a museum and a Michelin-starred restaurant.

SEE how the Monnaie de Paris played a central role during the Age of Enlightenment, when scientists unlocked the secrets of metals and alloys to create breakthroughs in how money was made and exchanged.

VISIT “Le Médaillier” opened exclusively for this experience, and meet a curator who will give you a privileged glimpse at rare coins from the reigns of Louis XIII, XIV, XV and XVI.

UNDERSTAND how the glamour and power of gold drew the attention of the celebrities of the day, from Marie-Antoinette to Peter the Great to Benjamin Franklin.

ENJOY a glass of Champagne while you learn how the money-making industry has evolved since the early days of the goldsmiths, and how the Monnaie de Paris still produces 120,000 state-of-the-art coins per year.
