National monetary unit of the United Arab Emirates is the dirham which is equal to 100 filses. In circulation there are coins of denomination 1, 5, 10, 25, 50 filses and 1 dirham.

In 1973 in the United Arab Emirates coins in nominal value 1, 5, 10, 25, 50 filses and 1 dirham have been manufactured. 1, 5 and 10 filses were minted in bronze, other coins from a Copper-Nickel. Coins in filses left the identical size and composition and corresponded to coins of Qatar and Dubai. In 1995 at coins of 50 filses and 1 dirham has been reduced the size, and new 50 filses the coin began to be manufactured the heptagonal form.

Significance and figures on coins are written by the Arabian letters and figures. Small coins 1, 5 and 10 filses are seldom used in an everyday life as all sums, are approximated in the big or smaller party to the proximate significance in 25 filses. The coin 1 fils is a rarity and has no significant distribution. In use there is a risk to confuse old 50 filses a coin with a modern coin 1 dirham, because at them the identical sizes.

Since 1976 the Central bank of the United Arab Emirates manufactures the memorable coins devoted to celebrating of various events and governors of the United Arab Emirates.
