The first largest fair for rare currencies in the region kicks off next Thursday with wide international participation, as the “Arados Exhibition” will display about 4000 pieces alongside an auction to sell about 125 rare coins. Among the offered currencies will be a rare coin dating back to the time of the Prophet Muhammad.
It also announced that among the rare collection there will be a 17-gram gold coin with its certificates, which belongs to Sultan Osman III (the Ottoman). It was among the private collection of King Farouk and dates back to 1755, that is, more than 200 years ago. A ten dinars coin will be displayed from the time of King Faisal I, the founder of Iraq, according to the organizer of the exhibition, Mohammed Al-Aradi.
Al-Aradi stressed that the exhibition and auction will be the largest of its kind in the region with the participation of 15 countries and double the number of exhibitors. Among the participating countries are the United States of America, Britain, Belgium, Russia, Finland, Mexico, and other countries, as this year witnesses the largest international participation, which makes the event the largest of its kind on the regional level.
The exhibition and auction will be held at Seef Mall Muharraq for three days under the patronage of the Minister of Youth and Sports Affairs Ayman Al-Moayad.
