A currency set issued by the People's Bank of China in 2019 consists of one silver and two gold commemorative coins themed on the Ancient City of Pingyao, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the coins are distributed by China Gold Coin Inc.  

The front sides of all three commemorative coins feature representations of Yingxun Gate in the Ancient City of Pingyao, as well as the country's name and issue year. 

The 150-gram gold commemorative coin with a denomination of 2,000 yuan is inscribed with an image of the Ancient City of Pingyao on the reverse. 

The 8-gram, 100-yuan gold commemorative coin is engraved with Zhenguo Temple on the reverse. 

The 30-gram silver coin worth 10 yuan is inscribed with the representation of the Weituo Buddha sculpture and a hall in the Shuanglin Temple on its reverse. It was shortlisted for the best silver coin nomination for the 2021 Coin of the Year international awards competition. 

The Ancient City of Pingyao was a financial center for China from the 19th century to the early 20th century and was the birthplace of China's banking industry. 

The issue of the commemorative coins is a recognition of Pingyao's past economic prosperity and celebrates the bright development prospects for contemporary Pingyao.
