UAE Introduces New AED 1,000 Banknote featuring its Space and Energy Ambitions

The United Arab Emirates (UAE) has set its sights on the stars and the sun with its latest AED 1,000 banknote release. The note features a design inspired by the country’s late founding father, Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, and his meeting with NASA scientists in 1974. The front of the note showcases an image of a space shuttle, with Sheikh Zayed and the UAE’s national emblem on one side, and an image of the country’s successful Hope Probe Mars mission on the other.

The Hope Probe Mars mission was a landmark achievement for the UAE, as it marked the first interplanetary mission by any Arab country. The successful launch and orbit insertion of the Hope Probe were a significant milestone for the country’s space ambitions and a testament to its commitment to progress and innovation. The AED 1,000 note celebrates this momentous occasion and serves as a symbol of the UAE’s vision for a brighter and more prosperous future.

The back of the banknote showcases an image of the Barakah Nuclear Power Plant, which started its commercial operations in April 2021. The power plant is the first of its kind in the Arab world and is expected to generate a quarter of the country’s electricity needs. The image is a testament to the UAE’s commitment to sustainable energy and its efforts towards building a greener future.

Apart from its impressive designs and significance, the AED 1,000 banknote also incorporates the latest security features to prevent counterfeiting. The note includes a tactile feature for the visually impaired and a security thread that changes color from red to green when tilted. The release of the new banknote highlights the UAE’s unwavering commitment to progress and innovation, as well as its dedication to promoting science, technology, and sustainability.
