Commemorative Coin Set Issued by the Bank of Israel

Higher Education in Israel Coin Set


Higher Education has a critical role in advancing society to meet the challenges of today and the future. It is the key to the world's future prosperity. Investment in Higher Education in the developed world will help solve the problems of the Third World and equip them to improve the quality of their life.


Higher Education in Israel reaches high international standards. The number of doctoral students is increasing and three Israeli scientists are among those who have been awarded Nobel Prizes.

The Israel 58th Anniversary Coin puts the spotlight on Higher Education. The coin design consists of several symbols of the different disciplines – Science, Humanities, Technology, Mathematics and others – outlined by the shape of a student's graduation cap. Each of the four angles of the cap reach out to the future, symbolizing the aims of Higher Education to assure the future well-being of society.
