"PEOPLE OF THE GOLDEN YEARS"


ISRAEL'S 57th ANNIVERSARY

Commemorative Coin Set Issued by the Bank of Israel

2005/5765

Golden Years of Israel Coin Set


Life expectancy in Israel is among the highest in the world and as life expectancy continues to grow, so does the senior citizen population.

Today, the world no longer belongs only to the young! Senior citizens also enjoy a full and healthy life. They have more leisure time in which to pursue hobbies and contribute to society, culture and the economy. Many take part in rewarding volunteering work.

The Israel Anniversary Coin of 2004 was dedicated to "Children". In 2005, the coin features the important role of senior citizens and the happiness derived from the "Golden Years".

An olive tree has appropriately been chosen to represent the people of the "Golden Years". The strong roots, branches and fruit, perfectly symbolize the developed strength, vigor and creativity of our Senior Citizens.
