Palestine Mandate Coins – Modern Israeli Currency

If you had the chance to design the coins for your country, what would they look like? Look at the coins in your pocket and ask yourself the following:

  • What do the coins you see tell you about their designers?
  • What might have been some other choices to put on these coins?
  • Do you like the way these coins look? Why, or why not?
  • How do you think these coins were made?

People who study coins are called numismatists. List five things numismatists look for in a coin. Find some wonderful information about coins and coin collecting on the World Wide Web.
