NEW BOOK ON COINS AND BANKNOTES OF ISRAEL AND THE BRITISH MANDATE

According to an October 11 article in the Jerusalem Post, "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."
