Macao Lunar Commemorative Series:
Applauded for its presentation, the new series (2008-2019) of commemorative Lunar coins presents the Chinese almanac animals with a modern touch on the obverse. On the reverse, a different design is depicted each year to best represent Macao- the 12 selected heritage sites of Macao. These twelve selected heritage sites are inscribed in the World Heritage list by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO). Each site vividly epitomizes the glorious culture and rich heritage of Macao in its own unique way.
