China has begun circulating a rounded square 5-yuan coin, the first in a series to honor the nation’s world cultural and natural heritage UNESCO sites.

This first coin in the series features Taishan in Tai’an, in the Shandong province in China. Taishan, also known as Mount Tai, has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1987. 

The first coin was released Nov. 28. The coins are being sold at face value by banks in China, with purchases limited to persons with a Chinese ID.
