Gold is making a comeback as MONEY. You can read about it here:
And I have written about this several times before:
There is a mechanism being put into place to destroy the US dollar in the next few years. It has many components, but the primary ones are an alternative oil sales system, a gold-backed trade platform, an international central bank outside of Western control, a framework for diminishing US influence, available natural resources, and a coalition of regional leader nations. Participants have reportedly agreed to prices of $7,500 minimum for gold and $150 for silver [per troy ounce].

The United States destroyed Libya and enabled the murder of Muammar Gaddafi to prevent him from creating a gold-backed dinar.
So, will we tolerate what Dubai is doing because we think the US can control their new currency and somehow use it to our advantage? That would be my guess.
