Description of obverse and reverse
The obverse shows a view of the Champs-Elysées towards the Arc of Triumph. In order to highlight Paris as a city of light, the most beautiful avenue in the world has been represented at night, when its trees are adorned with Christmas lights. The flame of the unknown soldier, which celebrates its 100th anniversary in 2020, shines at the foot of the Arc of Triumph. 

The Concorde obelisk is visible in the foreground and shows the angle of the shot. 

The reverse is the common reverse of the Paris’ Treasures series. It offers a modern view of the map of Paris and its districts represented by small pyramids. Above the map of Paris is the name of the series. Below, the face value and the vintage are shown.
