In coins can be found centuries of learning. Acclaimed coin collector Ram Kumar Tolani will join 50 local and international artists to pay tribute to the UAE with a unique display of rare coins at the ‘Year of Tolerance’ Art Exhibition by 2XL Furniture & Home Décor. The stunning 4-day show, being held at the 2XL store on Al Wasl Road in Jumeirah from 11th to 14th September 2019, will bring together over 200 spectacular artworks on a single platform with a common message of ‘T.O.L.E.R.A.N.C.E.’
Ram Kumar Tolani’s superb Goodwill collection spans the history of coinage and includes a diverse selection of rare as well as commemorative pieces. Amit Yadav, Head of Marketing, 2XL Furniture & Home Décor, said, “Mr Ram Kumar Tolani has one of the world’s finest numismatic collections comprising about eight tonnes of coins that chronicle some of the greatest events in history. We are proud to showcase the most treasured of these at the ‘Year of Tolerance’ exhibition by 2XL Furniture & Home Décor and very grateful to him for joining the show.” Ram Kumar Tolani, stressed, “The United Arab Emirates is home to over 200 nationalities and has set an example for the world by spreading and practising tolerance and respect for all cultures. There will always be differences between people, perceptions, opinions, personalities, religions and relationships. However, it is ‘tolerance’ and cooperation that hold the key to success. I am delighted to join in this celebration of diversity through art that propagates the message of love, peace and respect, and salutes the UAE.”
On display at the show will be a priceless range of coins grouped under Islamic, Christianity, Sikhism, Hinduism and Buddhism themes. Included in these will be masterpieces such as Leonardo Da Vinci – The Last Supper (set of 5 antiqued finish silver coins); 3 piece trio set of Lord Jesus coins, Gold Coin Light of the World, Mahatma Gandhi Collection; Diamond Anniversary of HM Queen Elizabeth II and HRH The Duke of Edinburgh, 60th Birthday of HRH The Prince of Wales; Prince Charles and Princess Diana pieces; Germany’s Mayers Mint as well as rare gold and silver coins of the UAE.
