The Burj Khalifa (Khalifa Tower), known as the Burj Dubai before its inauguration, is a megatall skyscraper in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. With a total height of 829.8 m (2,722 ft) including the antenna and a roof height of 828 m (2,717 ft), the Burj Khalifa is currently the tallest structure in the world since topping out in late 2008. Construction of the Burj Khalifa began in 2004, with the exterior completed 5 years later in 2009. The primary structure is reinforced concrete. The building was opened in 2010 as part of a new development called Downtown Dubai. It is designed to be the centrepiece of large-scale, mixed-use development. The decision to construct the building is reportedly based on the government's decision to diversify from an oil-based economy, and for Dubai to gain international recognition. The building was named in honour of the ruler of Abu Dhabi and president of the United Arab Emirates, Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan; Abu Dhabi and the UAE government lent Dubai money to pay its debts. The building broke numerous height records, including its designation as the tallest tower in the world.
The reverse of the coin depicts the stunning night view of the incredible Burj Khalifa building and the rest of the night lights of other famous Dubai buildings. On top of the reverse, the inscriptions: “Burj Khalifa” – the name of the coin and “MAGNIFICENT LANDMARKS AT NIGHT” – the name of the series. On the bottom, the inscription: “2017” – the year of issue. The obverse of the coin depicts the Coat of Arms of Ivory Coast and the inscriptions: “REPUBLIQUE DE COTE D’IVOIRE” – the issuing country and “2000 FRANCS CFA” – the face value.
