The Holy Land Mint and Bank of Israel have just released the 1 oz Gold Menorah, the third design in the “Jerusalem of Gold” bullion coin series. With a strictly limited mintage of only 3,600 coins, collectors would be wise to snap up this offering as quickly as they can!
This latest release honors the Knesset Menorah Monument, a well known tourist site in Jerusalem. The coin’s reverse features a depiction of the impressive 14 foot tall sculpted bronze menorah that now stands in the rose garden facing the Knesset Building, or Israeli parliament building. The Knesset building is depicted in the background.
This coin’s obverse, or front, depicts the Lion of Megiddo, a symbol taken from an ancient seal found in the Jordan Valley. The state emblem of Israel appears above the lion. All coins in the “Jerusalem of Gold” series use the same obverse design.
The Gold Menorah is a legal tender coin in Israel with a face value of 20 New Sheqalim. The coin contains a full ounce of .9999 fine Gold. It comes in a plastic capsule, which is held in a handsome, flock lined display box. Each coin also comes with a certificate of authenticity from The Holy Land Mint.
The “Jerusalem of Gold” series was launched in 2010 to honor a treasured historical site in the eternal city of Jerusalem with a new bullion coin each year. The first coin in 2010 honored the Tower of David. The 2011 coin honored The Western Wall. APMEX is proud to offer both of these coins for sale, along with a three coin set of the entire series so far.
