The Federal Authority for Identity and Citizenship has announced the continuation of the gift of His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, for UAE newborns born in 2019.

The initiative that was launched in the year of Zayed and continued in the Year of Tolerance reflects the cohesive ties that bind the UAE's leadership with its people. It also reflects the leadership's priorities in a country that places its people's happiness, prosperity, security and stability above all considerations.

The initiative includes the distribution of "Your Country, Your Responsibility" commemorative coins to all Emirati newborns, accompanied by a personal message from His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan. The very special message congratulates the new parents and welcomes the arrival of the newborn. It also highlights the values ​​of citizenship, loyalty and allegiance to the nation, and is a constant reminder of the values of ​​dedication and giving instilled by the UAE's founding father, the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan.

Also, embossed on the box is an image of a tree of values, highlighting the UAE's core values, such as giving, moderation and tolerance - a fitting reminder in the UAE's Year of Tolerance.

The commemorative coin is handed to all UAE citizens holding family books upon the completion of passport procedures.
