Kuwait City, Apr 22: In alignment with its commitment to upholding sustainability principles and supporting educational endeavors within the Ministry of Education, Gulf Bank successfully concluded its sponsorship of the “Journey of the Dinar” art and cultural exhibition. Organized by the Capital Educational Zone at The Avenues Mall, the event marked the initial issuance of the Kuwaiti currency in April 1961. It took place under the patronage of the Acting Assistant Undersecretary for Public Education, Dr. Hessa Al-Mutawa, with Gulf Bank’s General Manager of Consumer Banking, Mr. Mohammed Al-Qattan, also in attendance.

The exhibition showcased the evolution of the Kuwaiti Dinar through 80 artistic pieces from different educational districts within the Ministry of Education, creatively depicting the currency’s history from its initial issuance to its rise as one of the most valuable currencies in the world.

Since its initial release, the Kuwaiti Dinar has undergone several updates, the most recent being the sixth issuance released in June 2014. This edition is marked by a consistent and sophisticated design, highlighting important symbols from Kuwait’s national heritage and key economic milestones.
