ISRAEL – UNITED EMIRATES PEACE AGREEMENT
STATE MEDAL OF ISRAEL (Medal is the word used for Rounds in Israel)
With great excitement, Israel Coins and Medals Corp. is capturing the historic signing of the Peace Agreement between Israel and the United Arab Emirates on a State Medal, struck in fine gold and fine silver in tiny mintages.
The United Arab Emirates, located in the northeast of the Arabian Peninsula in the Persian Gulf, is a Federation of seven Arab-Muslim states, rich in oil. Its small population counts about ten million citizens, out of which only about one and a half million are UAE citizens. The others, who live and work there, come from outside the UAE.
The new Agreement will bring endless new trade opportunities for Israel, increasing its export volume, strengthening tourism and mutual economic growth, while the United Emirates will benefit from many advantages through the establishment of relations with Israel. This ground-breaking Agreement will result in economic, technological and state cooperation, creating a “new Middle East”. The new peace era brings hope for Israel, the Arab world and the entire world.
