The new currency which has been decided upon for Palestine will bear inscriptions in the three official languages of the country–English, Hebrew and Arabic, according to a statement made today in an interview by Mr. Davis, treasurer of the Palestine Government.

The new currency will be put into circulation in 1927 at the beginning of the fiscal year, Mr. Davis stated.

Moulds and dies for the new Palestine coins and notes are now being prepared.
