Old Mint – Cultural Center

Antigua Casa de la Moneda

Culture and coin collecting all in the same spot.

Once a mint, today this building is home to the Casa de la Cultura. In 1815, this is where bronze coins called cuartillas began to be made. But it was in 1865, during the term of Benito Juárez, when it truly operated as a mint for 14 months. Then, Porfirio Díaz ordered it closed. The three-story interior has many galleries exhibiting coins, papier-mâché sculptures, photos, paintings, and Huichol art.
