United Arab Emirates (UAE). Abu Dhabi. The United Arab Emirates dirham, also known as simply the Emirati dirham, is the currency of the United Arab Emirates.  Banknotes are currently available in denominations of 5 (brown), 10 (green), 20 (light blue), 50 (purple), 100 (pink), 200 (green/brown), 500 (navy blue) and 1000 (greenish blue) dirhams. The obverse texts are written in Arabic with numbers in Eastern Arabic numerals; the reverse texts are in English with numbers in Arabic numerals. On the reverse side, a drawing from a falcon. Falcons are birds of prey in the genus Falco, which includes about 40 species. Adult falcons have thin, tapered wings, which enable them to fly at high speed and change direction rapidly. Additionally, they have keen eyesight for detecting food at a distance or during flight, strong feet equipped with talons for grasping or killing prey, and powerful, curved beaks for tearing flesh. The United Arab Emirates (UAE) is a country in Western Asia at the northeast end of the Arabian Peninsula. 18.02.2020  © 2020 Didier Ruef
