UAE’s Central Bank Releases Polymer Note

The Central Bank of the UAE (CBUAE) has launched a new 1,000 dirham banknote in celebration of its 51st National Day, telling a story of the UAE’s success and global achievement in the field of space and clean energy.

In line with the UAE’s strategy and future aspirations, the bank note, made of polymer, is designed to embody the spirit of the union and the success story of the UAE, with cultural and developmental images and symbols that reflect the pioneering global achievements of the country, which strengthened its position to be among the most developed countries in a record time.

The front side of the new banknote bears the image of the country’s first President, late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, next to the model of a space shuttle and including a nod to the Emirates Mars Mission and Hazza Al Mansouri, the first Emirati to journey into space.

The striking design was inspired by Sheikh Zayed’s key meeting with NASA in 1976 to express his ambitions to cement the UAE as a major player in the global space race. With the UAE launching the Arab world’s first mission to Mars, the Emirates Mars Mission ‘Hope Probe’, remains in orbit of the Red Planet for studying the planet’s weather system and atmospheric conditions.

The CBUAE was also interested in showing another global achievement of the UAE by including a picture of the Barakah Nuclear Power Plant in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi on the back side of the new banknote, which will play a key role in diversifying energy sources in the country and reducing carbon emissions.

To enhance consumer confidence and combat counterfeiting, the new banknote is characterized by advanced security features with award-winning modern technologies used for the first time in the Europe, Middle East, and Africa region, as well as the technology of multi-coloured security chips, known as KINEGRAM COLORS, so that the UAE becomes the first country in the Middle East region to use the largest foil tape of this type in banknotes.
