It was then a Parisian coin factory attached to the Crown, in complement to the other eight factories set in province. A factory, the only in France, to make coin non-stop since it was created, that became major during the Ancien Régime, as the first in the kingdom.

As for the museum, it is devoted to the art of metal, and takes you to the heart of history of creation of currencies across the world, through permanent collections and temporary exhibitions.
