Israel Issues Victory Coin
A sterling silver "Victory Coin" with a nominal value of 10
pounds (S3.33) is being minted by the Bank of Israel and will be dis-
tributed in North America in September. One side of the coin shows
the Wailing Wall of the Temple of Solomon in Jerusalem and the date
on which it was restored to Jewish worship. The other side will
bear the emblem of Israel's Defence Forces and the nominal value.
Only 50,000 coins will be minted in proof condition. They are dis-
tinguishable by their highly polished surface and the tiny Hebrew
letter 'mem' which appears on all Israeli proof coins. Advance mail
orders will be processed by the Israel Discount Bank and the Bank
Leumi le-Israel in New York. Since an extremely heavy demand
is anticipated, orders will be limited to one proof coin per customer.
The official government issue price is 510 plus 50 cents for postage

attack by the Arabs."
