The Central Bank of the UAE (CBUAE), in collaboration with American University of Sharjah (AUS), issued 1,000 commemorative silver coins to celebrate AUS’ Silver Jubilee. The issuance of these commemorative coins aims to celebrate twenty-five years since the establishment of AUS in 1997, in fulfilment of the vision of its founder, His Highness Dr. Sheikh Sultan Bin Mohammed Al Qasimi, Supreme Council Member and Ruler of Sharjah, and President of the American University of Sharjah.

Each coin weighs 40 grammes. The front side includes a drawing of AUS with the year of its establishment in 1997, surrounded by the name of the university in Arabic and English.
