Welcome to the official website of the UAE Gold Bullion Coins
Following the success of DMCC’s “Visions of Dubai” gold coins, DMCC launched the ‘UAE Gold Bullion Coins’, in April 2012 to celebrate the UAE’s achievements as a major gold trading hub. The UAE Gold Bullion Coins build on Dubai’s reputation as the ‘City of Gold’ and support the growth and sustainability of the gold industry in the UAE.
In just 40 years, the UAE’s visionary leaders have lead the transformation of an intimate pearling community into a booming global economy with a modern, progressive society. The UAE’s rise to success in a global environment full of adversity and challenges is an accomplishment of historic proportions; a feat only its leaders believed possible 40 years ago.
The UAE Gold Bullion Coins were designed by Dubai Multi Commodities Centre, a government of Dubai entity and the region’s largest commodities authority.
The Coins were designed to celebrate the accomplishments and vision of the UAE’s leaders. The first edition of the Gold Bullion Coins feature a portrait of His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, the UAE president, on one side and the Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest tower on the reverse. Under the President’s leadership, the UAE has seen its rise to prosperity and has overcome some of its biggest challenges. The Burj Khalifa (‘Tower of Khalifa’), at 828 metres, is the tallest building in the world, a global symbol of progress and a beacon of human ingenuity.
The second edition of the Gold bullion coin was launched in December 2012. It features a portrait of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai and a rendering of Palm Jumeirah Island, the world’s largest man-made island. Under His Highness Shaikh Mohammed, Dubai has become the fastest growing city in the world, synonymous with success, prosperity and making dreams come to life. One of these dreams is Palm Jumeirah, known as the 8th wonder of the world, the island doubled Dubai’s coast line and is a masterpiece of engineering not seen anywhere else in the world.
Both coins stand as national emblems which reflect the determination and achievements of the UAE federation.
Minted by the Swiss refinery, Argor-Heraeus, the coins are accredited by the DMCC’s Dubai Good Delivery (DGD) standard. The DGD standard was launched by DMCC in 2005, and is regarded as the international benchmark quality and technical specifications standard for the production of gold and silver.
The UAE Gold Bullion Coins are available in four denominations weighing 1 oz, ½ oz, ¼ oz and 1/10 oz. The 99.99 gold purity (24 karat) coins carry Argor-Heraeus’ stamp of quality and authenticity.
