1995 Israel 10 New Sheqalim

Have an Israel coin and want to know its value? Leave a comment

Back to the vaults with Israel. It has been four years since I last found an Israeli coin in my change. Before 2006 these coins were often found in my change here in New York City. The reason was the constant travel by tourist from and to Israel.

From 2003-2006 the sheqel became a freely convertible currency and entered a number of trading markets. Well all that means is that the sheqel is one of few types of currency that is not useless outside of its own country. So less Israeli coins were "accidentally" put into American circulation.

The second interesting about Israeli coins is that there are so many varieties for each coin. 1995 10 New Sheqalim has seven varieties and designs. The language and lettering is a bit difficult to grasp so that increases the confusion for most sheqels, assuming Hebrew is not your native tongue.

Here's the stats...
Type/Country: 10 New Sheqalim / Israel
Year: 1995
Mintage: 28,224,000
Metal: Bi-Metallic: Aureate Bonded Bronze center in Nickel Bonded Steel ring
Value: $2.58 in XF and current exchange rates

Most Israeli coins were minted in South Korea so no matter what sort of instability happens in the Mid-East they would always have a fresh supply.

Do you have an Israeli coin and want to know its value? Leave a comment/question and I will do my best to find out the price and history for you.

The token (with bird) has the same design on both sides.

Thanks.

Unfortunately I cannot identify either.

Both seem like tokens although the images are not clear.

I'm sorry I'll keep searching but for now they do not stand out as rare or valuable.

The first coin/token is extremely worn down (leading me to believe it is a coin). The other token I will attach better pictures of it in this post. I deleted the pic of the back side of the coin because it is blank and I needed the space.

--To me it looks like a button but I still can't say.

--Again it is some type of token but I can't identify the language. You may need to find an Asian expert to translate.

There is a button collectors community but from what I understand most buttons are not that valuable.

No, better to use a free photo site and copy & paste the link.

Or provide your own email.
