The 10 rial/riyal coin is a circulation piece of the Republic of Yemen. It was issued in a single type by the Central Bank of Yemen from 1995 to 2009. The piece currently holds a legal tender face value of 10.00 Yemeni rials.
The coin is composed of stainless steel and measures 6.05 grams in mass, 26 millimeters in diameter, and 1.75 millimeters in thickness. It has medallic alignment and a reeded edge, and like most coins, is round in shape. The rims of both sides of the piece are raised and form the angles of an octagon.
The Shaharah Bridge, a well known pedestrian bridge near Shaharah, Yemen, is featured on the obverse. It is accompanied by the Arabic name of the landmark, "جسر شهارة" (Romanized: ǧisr šahārah), which is printed clockwise from the piece's lower to center right rims.
Written on two lines in the middle of the reverse, inside a solid circular border, is the face value "ريالات ١٠" (10 Riyālāt), with the numeral "١٠" (10) displayed in larger print than the word "ريالات" (Riyālāt). A stylized rendering of the Arabic name of the Central Bank of Yemen, "البنك المركزي اليمني" (al-Bank al-Markaziyy al-Yamaníyyun) is inscribed above the value, traveling in a counterclockwise direction from the coin's lower right to lower right boundaries. The Islamic date of minting appears at the bottom of the piece, followed by its Gregorian equivalent. These years are represented in Eastern Arabic numerals and are divided by a small dash. They are separated from the name of the Central Bank of Yemen by two lines, which extend from the coin's rim to the border encircling the coin's face value.
