The Central Bank of the UAE (CBUAE) in collaboration with the Shaikh Zayed Grand Mosque Centre (SZGMC) has issued 1,971 silver commemorative coins for the centre.

The issuance of this commemorative coin aims to showcase Shaikh Zayed Grand Mosque, named after the late Shaikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, as a religious, national, and cultural iconic landmark that mirrors the United Arab Emirates’ identity which become a global destination.

It consolidates the founding father’s vision for the mosque to become a platform for cultural dialogue, tolerance, and coexistence amongst different faiths in the UAE, that hosts more than 200 nationalities living in harmony and peace. 

Each coin weighs 40 grams, with the front side of the coin showing a portrait of the late Shaikh Zayed, with his immortal saying, “The union lives in my soul, in my heart, and it is the dearest to my heart.”
