Ajman Museum marks 30 years with limited-edition silver coins


Ajman Museum is celebrating its 30th anniversary with commemorative silver coins.

They were issued by the Central Bank of the UAE (CBUAE) in collaboration with the Ajman Tourism Development Department (ATDD).

This move by the authorities seeks to highlight the role of His Highness Sheikh Humaid bin Rashid Al Nuaimi, Supreme Council Member and Ruler of Ajman, and his interest in preserving Emirati heritage.

It also marks the UAE’s culture, including the vital role of Ajman Museum, a home for many precious Emirati artifacts revealing a nation’s valuable history.

The CBUAE will issue 1,000 silver coins, each weighing 40 grams.

The front side of the coin will feature the image of the Ajman ruler, with his name in Arabic and English, and the date of issuance in Gregorian and Hijri years (2021 and 1443 respectively).

The other side of the coin will see a drawing of Ajman Museum, with the names of both the Museum and the UAE Central Bank in Arabic and English.

All silver coins issued will be handed to the Ajman Tourism Development Department, and will only be available at the Ajman Heritage District.

The Ajman Museum building dates to the 18th century and was the Ruler of Ajman’s residence until 1970.

It was converted into the city’s police headquarters until 1979, and soon after turned into a museum.
