Throughout his reign, Prince Rainier III pursued an ambitious policy of territorial development and extension, now celebrated on three miniature sheets.

Throughout his reign, Prince Rainier III pursued an ambitious policy of territorial development and extension which gave Monaco a new dimension and resolutely fostered its economic and social progress.

The first undergrounding of the eastern part of the railway allowed the birth of Larvotto, a seaside district essential to tourism, which has continued to change in particular with the creation of a large hotel complex as well as a congress and exhibition center, the Grimaldi Forum.

The Fontvieille embankment, entirely built on the sea, has made possible the creation of a new district with its sports facilities, its port, its housing, its shops, and efficient processing industries.

The arrival in 2002 of the largest semi-floating dyke in the world contributed to double the reception capacity of Port Hercule and to accommodate cruise liners.
