For more than 40 years, UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization) has listed the sites that are part of the “world heritage cultural property sites”. Since 2007, Monnaie de Paris has honored various monuments included in this list on a series of collector coins.

This release celebrates the 500th anniversary of the construction of the Tower of Belem. The obverse shows the Tower of Belem viewed from the banks of the Tagus river, with the inscription "500 ans Tour de Belém" (500th anniversary of the Tower of Belem), and an old coin contemporary to the tower, O Português, on one of the tower’s balustrades.

The reverse is also new this year, as the focus of the series has moved away from the banks of the Seine to the heritage sites of the world as listed by UNESCO. It shows a portrait of Vasco da Gama, a key symbol of the Portuguese Age of Discovery. Items related to navigation have been added, such as Vasco da Gama’s caravel, the sea and the compass. The inscription says "550 ans Vasco de Gama" (550th anniversary of Vasco da Gama).
