Pont Neuf is a station of the Paris Métro in the heart of old Paris and is connected to the Île de la Cité by the nearby Pont Neuf. It opened in 1926 with the extension of line 7 from Palais Royal - Musée du Louvre to Pont Marie.
On the station's platforms are large reproductions of various coins, representing the Monnaie de Paris (Paris mint), located nearby over the Seine. The platforms also have an old set of scales for weighing money and two windows showing real coins.
