Collection highlighting the UNESCO World heritage
Emblematic monuments all around the world

For more than 40 years, the UNESCO (the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization ) lists the sites that are part of the “world heritage cultural property sites”. Since 2007, Monnaie de Paris honours various monuments included in
this list in a series of collector coins. From 2019, this thematic is expanding one more time all over the world.

The obverse represents the archaeological site of Olympia with its columns made from the remains of ancient monuments. The birthplace of the Antique sports is translated by a flame gushing out of the basin beside an Olympian priestess. The geometric shapes at the back of the coin evoke the famous Greek amphitheatres and therefore the first stadiums that hosted the sports in antiquity.

A new series dedicated to vases, which are considered the most expensive and famous in the whole world.

The first coin from this series “Chinese Dragon” features a small blue and white dragon porcelain vase that was sold for just about £5million – barely in 500 times more than it was estimated! The dragon vase dates back to the Qianlong period. It contains an intricate dragon motif and is beautifully decorated with bands of plantain leaves, waves, as well as a cloud-collar at the waisted neck and broad shoulders. The sides are densely painted with six meticulously rendered five-clawed dragons portrayed emerging from crashing waves and flying amid stylized clouds and flames.

A magnificent coin featuring a porcelain inset in the shape of a vase that is an incredibly fine piece of Chinese porcelain!
