These are the very first Israeli gold bullion coins, priced in accordance with the daily international price of gold, plus a reasonable mark up over gold.
These bullion coins are equally valuable as collectors items and as financial investments. The Gold Bullion Coins in the “Jerusalem of Gold” Series will depict a treasured historical site in the eternal city of Jerusalem. One coin will be issued annually, starting from 2010 with the “Tower of David”.
The reverse of each coin will depict the famous “Lion of Megiddo”, from archaeological excavations at this ancient Israelite city, and the design of this side will remain constant in the series.
ICMC is proud to give you a preview of the 2011 coin in the series, which will feature the timeless treasure, “The Western Wall” the last remnant of the Second Holy Temple.
The Tower of David, rising above the walls of the Old City of Jerusalem, near Jaffa Gate. The word “Jerusalem” appears above the Tower, again in all 3 languages, the Face Value of 20 New Sheqalim (NIS), mint mark and year. On the right side appear the words “1 oz. fine gold .9999” in Hebrew and English.
The Lion of Megiddo, with its stylized curved tail, is taken from an ancient seal excavated in Megiddo (Armageddon) in the Jordan Valley, dating from the 8th cent. BCE. The seal belonged to Shema, the servant of Jeroboam II, Israelite King. The lion is also the symbol of the Tribe of Judah and of the eternal capital of Israel, Jerusalem. The same Lion of Megiddo appeared in the past on the Israeli 5 Lira Banknote (1958), 5 Lira Coin (1978), and on the Half Sheqel Coin (1980). Above the figure of the lion appears the State of Israel Emblem and below it the word “Israel” in English, Hebrew and Arabic.
