Coins and medals


Have you always dreamed of finding a treasure? The coin cabinet keeps some magnificent examples. Discovered on the Place des Terreaux or in the Théâtre des Jacobins in Lyon, or in the local region, they are the highlights of a collection of around 50,000 coins, medals, tokens, seals and jewels.

They have helped forge the Lyon medal collection's reputation as one of the finest numismatic collections in France, second only to the collection in the French National Library in Paris.
