magasinAt first located 49 rue Vivienne, then 76 rue de Richelieu in Paris, Françoise and Christèle Cifré took over the shop.  

Today the physical shop has closed but Numistoria's business continues online.

In 30 years this shop has been a meeting place for professionnals of the financial industry but also for all public coming from France and overseas, looking throughout the old stock certificates for a glimpse of social and economic history.

Decrypting a signature, analyzing an illustration is a fascinating form of investigation.

Admire the graphic beauty, the disorientation or the humor of the old titles, are always so many good reasons to make them a place of choice, under frame, at the office or at home.
