Israel Money by Lil Fiji Laugh Until The Bitter EndIsrael Money: One of the most vital belongings you got to understand before coming to Israel is the value of the various banknotes and coins of Israel. Let’s begin with the basics:
There are four Israel money: 200 ILS, 100 ILS, 50 ILS, & 20 ILS type
Six 0.1 ILS, 0.5 ILS, 1 ILS, 2 ILS, 5 ILS, and 10 ILS.
On the rear of the note may be a line from Alterman’s poets, “Morning Song”: “We love you, homeland, happily, song and diligence .”
And old 200 Shekel note (the red one), which you would possibly still encounter. it’s still accepted widely in Israel:
On the front of the note, you’ll find Zalman Shazar’s face. Shazar was Israel’s third President between 1963-1973. Shazar was one of the Zionists leaders and also an excellent poet, author, and historian.
On the rear of the note, you’ll see an illustration of a street in Zefat and a neighborhood from Shazar’s diary, describing his visit to Zefat.
What are you able to buy with 200 Shekels? an evening during a cheap hostel + lunch and dinner during a cheap restaurant + transportation inside the town
You’ll find the face of Leah Goldberg. Goldberg (1911-1970) was among the best Hebrew poets, an author, and a professor of literary theory. Many Israeli children are raised together with her stories, like the famous childrens’ book,” A Flat to Rent.” In 1970, Goldberg received the Israel Prize for Literature. Within the background, there are the blossoming flowers of a fruit tree.
There’s Yitzhak Ben-Zvi’s face. Ben-Zvi (1884-1963) was the second and longest-serving President of Israel. He was chosen three times as President. He also made many researchers in the sector of Jewish studies.
On the rear of the note, there’s an illustration of the Old Synagogue in Peki’in.
What are you able to buy with 100 Shekels? An evening during a cheap hostel or lunch and dinner during a mid-range restaurant.
A new 50 Shekel note was issued during September 2014, but you’ll still find the old letter here and there. Before I introduce you to the old bill, let me introduce you to the new one (the green one). On the front of the note, you’ll find Shaul Tchernichovsky’s face. Tchernichovsky (1875-1943) was among the best Hebrew poets and was significantly influenced by the traditional Greek culture.
On the rear of the note, you’ll see an illustration of a corinthian Greek column, meant to denote Tchernichovsky’s add translating Ancient Greek literature. On the highest appears a line from Tchernichovsky’s poem, “I believe”: “Because I shall still believe the person, in his spirit, strong spirit.”
Agnon (1887-1970) is typically called Shai Agnon in Israel because we don’t like long names. Agnon was one of the foremost beloved authors in modern Israel.
There’s an illustration of Agnon’s glasses, pen, and notebook in the rear of the note. Behind them, you’ll barely see, but there’s an illustration of Jerusalem and Temple Mount.
What are you able to buy with 50 Shekels? A pleasant lunch during a mid-range restaurant or a ticket to the Israel Museum.
You’ll see the face of Rachel the Poetess, whose full name was Rachel Bluwstein Sela. Rachel was among the foremost beloved Israeli poets, who immigrated in 1909 to the Land of Israel-Palestine. She had lived near the ocean of Galilee (Kinneret) and worked during a women’s agricultural school before leaving to review. Next to her face, you’ll see the leaves of a palm. Palm trees are often found near the Kinneret.
On the rear of the note, you’ll see a typical landscape of the ocean of Galilee’s surroundings also as a line from one among her poems, saying: “Oh, my Kinneret, Did you exist or did I dream a dream?”
What are you able to buy with 20 Shekels? Three rides public transportation inside the town or two falafel meals during a cheap falafel shop.
The 10 Shekel coin is my favorite. Its frame is formed from nickel and its center from golden bronze. On its backside there’s a palm with seven leaves and two baskets on all sides.
What are you able to buy with 10 Shekels? One ride publicly transportation inside the town or a falafel meal during a cheap falafel shop.
The 5 Shekel coin is formed from 75% copper and 25% nickel. On its backside may be a Proto-Aeolic column and above it, the symbol of Israel.
What are you able to buy with 5 Shekels? A snack counter.
The 2 Shekel coin is formed from steel and covered nickel. It had been issued only in 2007 and may make life much easier once you got to pay 10 Shekels and only have one and a couple of Shekels (you can use five of the two Shekels rather than counting out ten single Shekels).
On its backside are two cornucopias, tied with ribbons and holding instead them different fruits. Between the two cornucopia, you’ll see a pomegranate. This coin’s design was influenced by the coins which were issued by John Hyrcanus, one among the Maccabean leaders during the 2nd century BCE. The symbol of Israel also appears on the coin, of course.
The truth is that you can barely buy anything with this coin alone. Maybe four bubble gums.
The single Shekel coin is formed from 75% copper and 25% nickel. On the currency, you’ll see a lily, taken from a coin that was issued during the amount during which the Persians ruled. Under the Israel Money, diagonally, the work “Yehuda” is written in ancient Hebrew. the symbol of Israel also appears on the coin, of course, at the proper hand of the lily
This coin is convenient for using public toilets that charge 1 shekel to enter.
The half Shekel coin is one among the favorite Israel Money amongst tourists. It’s worth only half a Shekel. And is that the most significant coin of all of them. The currency is formed from 92% copper, 6% aluminum, and a couple of nickels. On the Israel Money, you’ll find a carving of a harp, maybe David’s beloved harp. The symbol of Israel also appears on the proper hand of the harp.
This coin can make a store clerk very happy because they provide it out tons.
The 10 Agorot coins (0.1 Shekel) is formed from 92% copper, 6% aluminum and a couple of nickel. it’s a replica of the coin that Antigonus II Mattathias issued, the last Hasmonean king of Judea. Thereon you’ll see a seven-branched candelabrum and, therefore, the word Israel in Hebrew, Arabic, and English. The symbol of Israel appears above the chandelier.
This coin also can make a store clerk very happy, because they provide it out tons.
Is Your Israel Money Real or Fake?
I haven’t experienced getting fake Israel money in Israel, but anything can happen, so if you would like to form sure that the cash people gave you isn’t fake, here are some belongings you can search for on the cash note:
Transparent Portrait – once you check out the cash note during an obvious way, you won’t see it. But if you raise the bill towards the sun or some light, you’ll see a portrait on the left side of the note, which is nearly just like the most Portrait on the bill.
The pierced value of the Israel Money. Again, you would like to boost the cash note to some source of sunshine and check if there’s the worth of the bill (20, 50, 100, 200) pierced in tiny holes at the top-center of the note.
The Perfect Menorah – At the highest side of the note, both on the rear and therefore the front, there are some strange lines and a dot at the highest. You’ll see that more lines appear and create an ideal “menorah” with the prevailing lines.
