Is this one too common?

I think it's great for the Trivia category!

Maybe these three additions can be made to the "Dubbed as another WHS" connection?

They're based on this article: The Versailles of Wales, Vienna, Hampstead, Belarus...

- Royal Palace of Caserta: the Versailles of Naples
- Drottningholm Palace: The Versailles of the North
- Schönbrunn: The Versailles of Vienna

Could I also propose a "Scheldt" connection in the "Geography Connections"?

- Belfries: Antwerp, Dendermonde, Gent, Oudenaarde, Tournai
- Plantin-Moretus museum
- Flemish Béguinages: Dendermonde, Gent
- Notre-Dame Cathedral in Tournai

We generally try not to connect only sites from 1 country (as they are connected in many ways), but since we have the Vistula in Poland already..
For none of the sites named above however I think they border the Scheldt or have the Scheldt in their core zone. But it seems we haven't been that strict with Rhine as well (counting tributaries too, we did so at Vistula also). So let's add Scheldt.

For the "On Euro coins" connection, this site could come in handy

So, these Unesco sites were on commemorative 2 euro coins:
- Guimarães (Portugal 2012)
- Porto (Torre dos Clerigos - Portugal 2013)
- Riga (Latvia 2014)
- Segovia (Spain 2016)
- Vatican (Vatican 2016)
- Megalithic Temples of Malta (Malta 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020)
- Vilnius (Lithuania 2017)
- Venice (Italy 2017)
- Asturian Monuments (Spain 2017)
- Paphos (Cyrpsu 2017)
- Archaeological site of Philippi (Greece 2017)
- Santiago de Compostela (Spain 2018)
- Avila (Spain 2019)
- Potsdam (Germany 2020)
- Mudejar Architecture of Aragon (Spain 2020)

Also, I think all the "scheduled" remarks should be deleted.

I second that.

How far does this coin connection go? The State Quarters in the US had at least 3 UNESCO sites, and the America the Beautiful quarters already have 3 within the first batch alone plus Hawaii Volcanoes, Chaco Culture and Great Smoky Mountains just having a quick glance at the list. These are pretty good. But I also know that some countries have collector coins JUST for the UNESCO sites so it has to be circulated money to count? (the collector coins still have a printed value but I think some expert will explain this better than me, but I don't mean the machines that print out a coin at the site itself).

Yes, it has to be legal tender. Will update the connection with the above (as it seems it was last updated before 2015...)

For the "Assassinations" connection:

- Stelling van Amsterdam: Floris V was imprisoned in and killed near the Muiderslot, which is part of the Stelling of Amsterdam

100 Euro commemorative coins are also legal tender yet aren't in general circulation and one wouldn't be dumb enough to actually try to spend the face value in a shop. However, the 100 Euro coin seems to be used for a lot of WHS, e.g. 3 for Slovakia alone, and I saw many other countries have these too.
