Eid Mubarak

خالص التهاني وأطيب الأمنيات بحلول عيد الأضحى المبارك. أعاده الله عليكم وعلينا بالخير واليمن والبركات

To those celebrating Eid Al-Adha, please accept my wishes for a happy and peaceful Eid, with many happy returns. I am not aware of any Arab coins or banknotes that directly commemorate Eid Al-Adha, but I am aware of a 1000 Rial coin issued by Iran in commemoration of this occasion. The coin was issued in 2010 and is easy to obtain. If anybody is aware of any coins or banknotes from the Arab world that commemorate this, please do share!

    Happy Eid and best wishes. That’s an interesting coin. I can’t think of any coins or banknotes I’ve seen other than this that celebrate Eid al-Adha, but I guess it would be kind of hard to mint and circulate a coin for a yearly holiday, as opposed to a centennial anniversary or something like that.

    @S.C. – Thank you for the kind wishes. I also thought it’s an interesting piece as well, precisely for the reason you outlined with this being an annual holiday! I just returned from a long vacation and have some catching up to do on your blog.

    I strongly encourage all who read this comment to visit S.C.’s blog at http://scintillatingsilver.wordpress.com/ Trust me, it’s worth your while!
