Another coin from Israel today, only three days after the last one.
Israel, 1 sheqel, 5741 (1981 CE) (KM #111.1)
Like Monday’s big 50-sheqel coin, today’s singleton sheqel is from the Old Sheqel Era of the early 1980s. It is no longer legal tender in Israel or anywhere else, so its only value today is collector value. Since 154,540,000 were minted in ’81, this is a common coin with little collector merit.
