The National Archives Displays a Large Number of Coins and Commemorative Stamps that Document Important Chapters of the Memory of the UAE.


The National Archives showed great interest in coins and old commemorative stamps, for which it provided a large space in its pavilion “Memory of the Nation” at Sheikh Zayed Festival, as coins have historical importance; they document important national events and historical achievements. Many coins and stamps have historical, artistic and cultural information and present important facts that reflect transformations and developments in the UAE.
The displayed coins were originally produced by government bodies in the UAE to document important events, or were given as gifts to official entities in the UAE, or to internal or external parties. Commemorative coins are not money, but they are materially and morally precious items.
Most prominent of these is the National Archives’ coin, issued on the 40th anniversary of its establishment under the guidance of the Founding Leader Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan, to preserve the memory of the Emirates for future generations. In addition, there are dozens of old and commemorative coins, such as the coins of: Ras Al Khaimah Chamber of Industry, 2019 Asian Cup, Al Ain National Museum, For the Children of the World, the commemorative 100 and 50 AED coins and some of the coins which were used in the past, in addition to those issued on national occasions and some official metal emblems.
The “Memory of the Nation” pavilion also displays the three stamps of the National Archives, which were issued on its 40th anniversary, as it was established in 1968. The main stamp bears five images of: Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan, Sheikh Rashid Bin Saeed Al Maktoum, His Highness Sheikh Khalifa Bin Zayed, the President of the UAE, His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid, the Vice President and Prime Minister of UAE and Ruler of Dubai, and His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces,. The second stamp bears a historical picture documenting the hoisting of the UAE flag for the first time. The third stamp bears a picture of the National Archives headquarters in Abu Dhabi.  Also on display, a large number of old stamps of Abu Dhabi, Dubai and Sharjah.
