Münzplatz (which translates to ‘Coin Square’) is a small square in Zurich, Switzerland, with a fountain at its center. It is located in a pedestrian zone just next to the Augustinerkirche Zürich (Augustinian Church – built in 1270). During the Reformation in Zürich, the church was converted into a secular workshop that served as a mint coinage until it returned to its principal usage as a church 300 years later. This square’s name thus holds the memories of the history of its attending church. It is located in Zurich’s old town (Altstadt), which also makes up parts of Zurich’s Quartier Lindenhof in the District 1 [Kreis 1].
