The gold and silver coins, available for sale on amazon.ae, are part of a range of gifts, souvenirs and memorabilia to be produced by companies from around the world under Expo 2020’s Licensing and Retail programme.

Official Licensees have the opportunity to reach global audiences by retailing their products online, at outlets across the UAE, and at official Expo 2020 stores in the run-up to the event which opens its doors for six months on 1 October 2021.

The coins are desirable pieces for collectors, as well as countries, companies and individuals that will be part of and attend Expo 2020, a historic event for the UAE and the region.
