With a mirror effect, the principal facade of the Grand Palais appears on the bottom part of the coin. It is dominated by its famous glass roof, structure. It is adorned with a selective deposit of black rhodium on the Grand Palais part, and of gold on the Invalides ones. Reverse: on the reverse the UNESCO logo, the face value, the yeardate and the mintmarks are to be found on the left side, with the name of the series ‘Rives de Seine’. On the right, an aerial view with two dots indicating the location of the monuments honoured.
A brief annotation Les Invalides: there was no particular foundation to house invalid soldiers. In 1670, Louis XIV decided to create the Hôtel des Invalides for war veterans. Napoleon Bonaparte then initiated the transformation of the Saint-Louis church into a national military pantheon. Today, the National Hôtel des Invalides, is a symbolic place of national memory.The Grand Palais was designed to be permanent. In 1896, an architectural competition is launched. The works began in 1897 and lasted 3 years. The Grand Palais achieved great success.
