UAE reveals AED500 coin to mark Golden Jubilee

Now this is one coin you don’t want to lose down the back of the sofa as the UAE has revealed an AED500 coin.

The special AED500 coin has been minted to mark the UAE’s Golden Jubilee.

The high-value coin features an image of Qasr Al Watan, the Palace of the Nation, on the front. And the back features the Year of the 50th logo.

The coin “embodies the Ministry of Presidential Affairs’ alignment with the country’s pioneering achievements and initiatives” and its “quest to build a prosperous economy”.

You’ll definitely know if you’ve been given the coin as it weighs a hefty 250g!

But sadly, the coin will not be available for sale at the Central Bank headquarters and its branches.

50 Lamborghinis drive across the UAE to celebrate 50th National Day

Staying with the UAE National Day…

Only in the UAE would you see a parade of 50 Lamborghinis driving across the country to celebrate the country’s 50th National Day.

But that’s exactly what 50 Lambo drivers have done as they’ve sped – presumably at or under the speed limit, of course – across the UAE.

And the group end their cross-country trek by driving up to the Burj Al Arab in convoy today.

Most of the cars have come from the UAE. But around 25 of the Lamborghinis have come over from Saudi Arabia for the road trip.

Along the way, the group drove across Ras Al Khaimah and Jebel Jais on day one. And then visited Marjan and Fujairah and Al Suhub Rest House.

They were then given a police escort into Khor Fakkan before arriving in Dubai.
