The Münzplatz is located in Koblenz Altstadt, its name recalls the former electoral mint.
The coins of the electors of Trier were minted in Koblenz with few interruptions since the middle of the 11th century. In the 15th century, Koblenz even became the prince-bishop's main mint, replacing Trier.
Originally, the mint consisted of several buildings (smelter, draw frame, punching mill, locksmith's shop, white piece kitchen, annealing furnaces, tasting house), which were demolished at the beginning of the 19th century, exposing the present Münzplatz. Today, only the mint master's house, a Baroque building with a plain plaster facade, remains.
