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.


Coin Story

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.

However, the decision to sell your coin is dependent on obtaining a reliable price that is as close to the prevailing gold price.
