20 euro – 10th anniversary of the inscription of San Marino in the UNESCO World Heritage List
Series: San Marino – Gold euro coins
The numismatic issue celebrates the symbolic value of the inscription of San Marino Historic Centre and Mount Titano in the UNESCO World Heritage list on the 7th July 2008: San Marino is one of the world’s oldest republics and the only surviving city-State, representing an important stage in the development of democratic models in Europe and worldwide. It bears witness to the establishment of a representative democracy based on civic autonomy and self-government. The reverse side of the coin shows two of the most representative monuments of the Republic of San Marino: the Liberty Statue and the Government Building.
