Coin Story

Welcome to the official website of the UAE Gold Bullion Coins

Following the success of DMCC’s “Visions of Dubai” gold coins, DMCC launched its new series, ‘UAE Bullion Gold Coins’, in April 2012. The coins programme celebrates the UAE’s achievements as a major gold trading hub. The UAE Bullion Gold coins build on Dubai’s reputation as the ‘City of Gold’ and make a statement regarding the aspirations of the UAE to continue to support the growth and sustainability of the gold industry in the UAE.

The Design

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, featuring 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, the world’s largest man-made island. Under the leadership of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed, Dubai has become one of the fastest growing cities in the world, synonymous with success, prosperity and innovation. One of Dubai’s most renowned examples creativity and innovation is the Palm Jumeirah, often referred to as the 8th wonder of the world. The island has doubled Dubai’s coastline and is a masterpiece of engineering unseen 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.
