Arms of the Kingdom and inscription "Half 1/2 dirham".

The current coat of arms of Morocco (formally, the royal coat of arms) was introduced 14 August 1957. It was developed by the graphic artists Gauthier and Hainaut and shows a pentagram, specifically a two-dimensional Penrose pentacle on a background before the Atlas Mountains and a rising sun. The royal crown is on top. Two lions function as the holders of the shield. On the ribbon underneath, the Arabic inscription is written: (Arabic: إن تنصروا الله ينصركم‎‎) (If you glorify God, He will glorify you) (Quran, Verse 7, Sura 47).
