The Board of Governors of the Government Medals and Coin Corporation decided Thursday to issue gold, silver and bronze medals commemorating the Entebbe operation. The decision to issue a medal came after the Bank of Israel refused to approve a coin, arguing that by the time the coin would be issued, it would no longer cause interest. Three thousand 35 mm gold medals will be Issued at $360 each, 5000 30mm gold medals at $175 each. 5000 59mm silver medals at $500-each, 7000 45mm silver medals at $250 each and a bronze medal will be issued shortly.
