The Central Bank has issued new gold and silver coins to mark the opening of Sharjah Mosque.

The gold coin bears a drawing of the mosque on one side, and a Quranic verse on the other.

It says: "The mosques of God are only to be maintained by those who believe in God and the Last Day".

Both coins weigh 60 grams and have 60 millimetre diameter, and portray the text in Al Thuluth calligraphy.

They were designed and implemented by Sharjah Islamic Bank to commemorate the opening of the mosque, designed in an Ottoman style, by Sheikh Dr Sultan bin Muhammad Al Qasimi, Ruler of Sharjah.
