The Israel Olympic Delegation to the next Olympic Games.
Gymnastics is one of the most popular events of the Olympic Games.
The new coin issued by the Bank of Israel depicts an impressive ribbon performance by a gymnast, with the ribbon flying in the air in the shape of a Star of David. The coin will join the world collection of coins, capturing the excitement of the Games in London and hopefully achieving the Olympic Motto: "Faster, Higher, Stronger".
