United Arab Emirates Gold Coins

Brief United Arab Emirates History
The Trucial States of the Persian Gulf coast granted the UK control of their defense and foreign affairs in 19th century treaties. In 1971, six of these states - Abu Zaby, 'Ajman, Al Fujayrah, Ash Shariqah, Dubayy, and Umm al Qaywayn - merged to form the United Arab Emirates (UAE). They were joined in 1972 by Ra's al Khaymah. The UAE's per capita GDP is on par with those of leading West European nations. Its generosity with oil revenues and its moderate foreign policy stance have allowed the UAE to play a vital role in the affairs of the region.

United Arab Emirates Gold Coins
The United Arab Emirates (U.A.E.) have only issued gold coins since 1979, and only on a limited number of occasions.
We show here a 1980 gold proof which was issued in conjunction with UNICEF in its Year of the Child initiative.
