Israel presents final design of the new 50 NIS note

Israel is preparing for the introduction of the first two banknotes of the new series: the 50 and 200 NIS (new Israeli shekel). The new series was presented in April 2013 and the first two notes were scheduled for the end of last year. In August however the Bank of Israel made clear that their would be a delay of several months before the first note would be issued.

This week the Bank of Israel issued a press release with the final design of the new 50 NIS note. This was done to aid manufacturers, suppliers, and operators of vending, counting and sorting machines, in order to calibrate them to accept the new banknote. There are some small changes from the original concept like added security elements and some added imagery. More details can be found in the press release.
