The Joseph Puig Medals and Coins Museum, named after its founder, is a link between the past and the present. Through these coins, you will voyage from the Mediterranean shores to the Pacific coast, from the first money ever used to the currency we use today. Sesterces, cowries, drachmas and dirhams, sols and double sols, francs, euros … all can be found in the permanent and temporary exhibitions at the museum.
The museum is located in the heart of the Villa Les Tilleuls. Designed by the architect Viggo Dorph-Petersen at the beginning of the twentieth century, the botanic and architectural features are done in the Art Nouveau style that characterises the district around the Perpignan train station.
