The Golden Age of Vintage Games: The "Insert Coin" Exhibition at the Monnaie de Paris

Just a few steps from our establishment, the Monnaie de Paris offers you a journey through time with the "Insert Coin" exhibition, featuring a collection of coin-operated gaming machines. From the late 1960s to the late 1990s, France experienced a true golden age of these entertainments, including foosball, pinball machines, jukeboxes, and video game terminals, thus shaping an iconic culture of cafes and arcades.
By delving into these settings, you will discover the iconic machines of each decade and explore the social and cultural impact of these games on the youth of the time.
Beyond a mere retrospective, the exhibition invites visitors to physically experience the use of coins with authentic and playable machines, thus offering a total immersion in this playful and nostalgic experience.
