The Bank of Israel has published a new book presenting banknotes and coins of the State of Israel and the British Mandate from 1927 to the present day by researcher and collector Yigal Arkin and edited by Bank of Israel numismatic curator Dr. Rachel Barkay. Available in Hebrew and English editions, the book includes pictures of each note and coin issued, the origin of design motifs - generally based on ancient Hebrew coins - and technical details such as anti-counterfeiting measures. While the book is expected to appear in stores soon, it may now be bought directly from the Bank of Israel's publications unit for NIS 98.
