Israel's 46th Anniversary of Independence Commemorative

The Government of Israel declared the year 5754 (1994) as the Year of the Environment

The 5754 /1994 Anniversary Coin is entitled "For a Better Environment." The State of Israel had chosen to join the world effort in protecting the planet Earth. A great deal of work has already been accomplished, cleaning up the coasts and rivers, the recycling of waste material, prevention of air pollution, and preservation of nature and landscape. The Independence Day Coin is graced with a flower whose center resembles the Earth, a delicate reminder of our harmed Planet and the need for its conservation.
