In 2012 the United Arab Emirates switched from copper-nickel dirhams to nickel-plated steel ones. There should be an overlap in 2012 for both metal types. None were minted for 2013 so 2014 is the first full production using the less expensive metal.
Here's the stats for this coin...
Type/Country: 1 Dirham / United Arab Emirates
Year: 2004 (1435)
Metal: Nickel-Plated Steel
Value: $0.35 in VF (very-fine)
