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.
