For several years, the Banque de France and the Musée des Arts et Métiers have established a cooperation that has resulted in an agreement in principle on the loan by the museum of a coin minting press dating back to 1845. This press will be showcased at the Cité de l’économie.
The partnership agreement formalises, strengthens and extends this cooperation. In particular, it provides for the sharing of experiences on the presentation of collections as well as joint actions in the field of education and for the organisation of temporary exhibitions, aimed at a wide public including school children.
