Israel relases first polymer note, and a 60th anniversary commemorative

This past month the Bank of Israel has realased a 20 New Sheqalim in polymer plastic. It is the same design as the current paper issue which has been in use since 1998, featuring Moshe Sharett.

The polymer plastic issue has a clear window design of a Star of David.

The 60th Anniversary commemorative has a print run of 1,800,000. The difference is a line of Hebrew text printed in red on the back of the note. I have been told by our contributor that they are initially only being distributed via ATM machines.

    Thank you for the knowledge above.
    Is there any information regarding the new Pick numbers of these two notes ?
    Whether is a continuation of the existing 20NIS series, or a completely new ?

    Regards,
