Coin Collecting at the Safir House
Israeli Coins

Mon Dec 18 00:15:40 2017

Since its inception the State of Israel has been very proud and productive in its coins and currency. This section will be one of my growing coin collecting area, of both Israeli circulating coins and commemortative. I also have some the state sells through its banking system, both authentic coins and replicas.

2 Sheckel Proof Akko



One Shekel Akko and Coin Detail of the Door. In truth, I lost track
of which Obverse is the 2 Sheckel Proof and which is the Proof-Like One
Sheckel uncirculate. One coin has a more complete brickwork over the
door. The other has some bald spots in the strike. That being said,
the AKKO design from Israel is one of my all time favorite coin designs
and I find the depth of the landscape to be simply breathtaking

The City of AKKO is now an UNESCO sight and this coin celebrates that fact.
However, Israel has put out a number of urban coins such as this and the result
is always special.

Several mints from around the world make exciting coin designs in circulating alloys, silver and gold. Among my favorites are the Perth Mint in Austrailia which produces a variety of coins for nations mostly through out the Pacific Rim. The Neatherlands has also produced some interesting designs, and several private US based mints have produced foreign currency on contract, include the Franklin Mint which has produced many Israeli Coins.
Our interest in foreign coins has been nominal but rapidly growing as it seems that US designs are so stuck in the mud. Also, foreign mints are creating bold new designs with color and bimetal designs that are both eye catching and fun.
