The Thousand and One Nights, is a collection of largely Middle Eastern and Indian stories of uncertain date and authorship whose tales of Aladdin, Ali Baba, and Sindbad the Sailor have almost become part of Western folklore.

As in much medieval European literature, the stories are set within a frame story. Its scene is Central Asia, where King Shahryar, after discovering that during his absences his wife has been regularly unfaithful, kills her and those with whom she has betrayed him. Then, loathing all womankind, he marries and kills a new wife each day until no more candidates can be found.

His vizier, however, has two daughters, and the elder, Shahrazad (Scheherazade), having devised a scheme to save herself and others, insists that her father give her in marriage to the king. Each evening she tells a story, leaving it incomplete and promising to finish it the following night. The stories are so entertaining, and the king so eager to hear the end that he puts off her execution from day to day and finally abandons his cruel plan.

The coin features Scheherazade on a high relief, against enamel background and a special polished finish, The background features folktales such as ‘Aladdin’s Wonderful Lamp’ and ‘Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves’.
