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 2020, this thematic is expanding one more time all over the world.

China's most glorious palace sits in the heart of the capital city of Beijing. As one of China's largest and most well-preserved heritage sites, the Forbidden City is a must-see for all visitors to China.

It is considered to be among the world's top 5 most important palaces of all time, and is China's most popular single-site tourist attraction. It hosts 14 million visitors per year, with a maximum of 80,000 visitors allowed per day.

The reverse is common to all the coins in the UNESCO series for this year 2020. It represents the globe with parallels and meridians on the left and the inscriptions of major sites classified as UNESCO World Heritage Sites on the right. These inscriptions are as if engraved in the stone, which echoes the Rosetta Stone. The left side of the globe is surrounded by the UNESCO logo and the "World Heritage" marking. The face value is inscribed on the left side of the globe, matching perfectly with parallels and meridians.
