Qaboos bin Said Al Said (1940–2020) was the Sultan of Oman from 23 July 1970 until his death. A fifteenth-generation descendant of the founder of the House of Al Said, he was the longest-serving leader in the Middle East and Arab world at the time of his death.


Depicts the National Emblem of Oman dividing denomination in Arabic and English, surrounded by the country name inside a circle, with the legend "Central Bank of Oman" outside both in Arabic above and English below.

The national emblem of Oman is an insignia consisting of a khanjar inside its sheath that is superimposed upon two crossed swords. Adopted in the 18th century as the badge of the Omani royal family, it subsequently became the national emblem of the Sultanate of Oman. The emblem is featured at the canton on the Flag of Oman.

A khanjar (Arabic: خنجر‎‎, Persian: خنجر‎‎, Turkish: Hançer) is a traditional dagger originating from Oman. Worn by men for ceremonial occasions, it is a short curved sword shaped like the letter "J" and resembles a hook. It can be made from a variety of different materials, depending on the quality of its craftsmanship. It is a popular souvenir among tourists and is sold in souqs throughout the region. A national symbol of the sultanate, the khanjar is featured on the country's national emblem and on the Omani rial. It is also utilized in logos and commercial imagery by companies based in Oman.

Depicts an outer view of Barkat Al-Mauz Castle, inscription in Arabic above and English below, date in Hijri and Georgian in Arabic and English below.

Bayt Ar Rudaydah Castle, also known as Barkat Al-Mauz Castle, was commissioned by Imam Sultan bin Saif bin Malik Al Ya’rubi, a historical Omani ruler who passed away in 1680 AD. This fortified mansion, typical of Oman's architecture, features a central courtyard for ventilation and light, flanked by two cannon towers at opposite corners. Positioned strategically, the castle oversees the entrance to the Al Jabal Al Akhdar mountains and safeguards the Falaj Al Khatmeen water system, essential for irrigating the date oasis of Birkat Al Mawz town (alternatively spelled Birkat Al Mouz / Moz). Today, the castle serves as a museum exhibiting the extensive weapons collection of Dr. Christopher Roads, who dedicated years to curating this display.
