What will the Cité de l’Économie et de la Monnaie offer ? A space dedicated to economic culture, presenting economic, monetary and financial notions and mechanisms in a playful, pedagogical and interactive way. A public space where topical questions relating to current affairs can be answered and discussed. A place offering educators and their students illustrations of the notions and issues examined in class. A space where collections of coins, banknotes and machines for their fabrication can be exhibited – particularly those issued or manufactured by the Banque de France, explaining the link between these historical objects and contemporary economic topics.
