"Volunteering" in Israel
ISRAEL'S 54th ANNIVERSARY
Commemorative Coins Issued by the Bank of Israel
To give wholeheartedly, and not for the sake of receiving recompense, is the essence of volunteering. By dedicating this year's Israel Anniversary Coin to "Volunteering", the State of Israel expresses its appreciation and recognition of all devoted volunteers.
The design is composed of two hands joined together with a heart in the center, symbolizing the outstanding goodheartedness of volunteers. From a certain angle, the hands together resemble two doves, a symbol of love and peace. The inscription around the rim, "Volunteering" in Hebrew, English and Arabic.
The denomination "1, 2 or 10" in the center of the coin. The year of issue "5762/2002" and "New Sheqel" or "New Sheqalim" in Hebrew and English. The word "Israel" in Hebrew, English and Arabic. The State Emblem at the left.
