The department also has its own archives dating back to the 1660s, as well as private archives from 19th and 20th century antique dealers and numismatists.
The latter include various learned collections: the Ernest Babelon, Adrien Blanchet, and Claudius Côte collections, etc. They also include correspondence such as both published and unpublished numismatic and archeological works.
These archives form a fundamental collection for the historiography of numismatics and the study of the origins of coins.
