Die Used to Mint the Decades Coin Destroyed in the Office of the Governor of the Bank of Israel

  • Rate
At the office of the Governor of the Bank of Israel, the die used to mint the Decades Coin is ceremonially destroyed, as production of the coin is terminated. In the course of the year marking one decade of Israels independence, 100,000 special coins were minted, which met a great demand in Israel and abroad. Each coin was sold for ten Israeli pounds. Chaim Moro, an expert metalsmith, destroys the dies by etching them smooth.
