New Israeli bank notes to feature women Print E-mail

The Bank of Israel has announced that the new NIS 20 and NIS 100 banknotes — the two remaining denominations in series C of the New Israel Shekel (NIS) — are expected to enter circulation at the end of November this year.

The new NIS 20 note is red and will have an image of Rachel Bluwstein — known in Hebrew as Rachel the poetess, and the back of the bill will contain words from her poem “Kinneret” (meaning the Sea of Galilee), alongside a picture of the shore of the same lake. The new NIS 100 is orange and bears the portrait of Leah Goldberg, one of Israel’s most acclaimed poets and writers. The back of the bill will have an image of deer plus an excerpt from Goldberg’s poem “White Days”.

Within the framework of the preparations for issuing the new banknotes, automated-machine operators are required to complete the calibration of vending machines and banknote-counting machines, through software that identifies new banknotes.
