Israel to Mint Victory Coin Depicting Western Wall

A sterling silver “Victory Coin” will be minted by the Bank of Israel next month to mark Israel’s victory over Arab aggression in the six-day war. The coin, which will have a nominal value of 10 Israeli pounds ($3.33), will bear a likeness of the Western Wall. Judaism’s most sacred shrine, and the date on which it was restored to Jewish worship. The other side of the coin will bear the emblem of Israel’s defense forces.
