Comments

Following the establishment of the State, the government requested the Israel Numismatic Society to propose the designs for a new series of coins. Leo Kadman and Hanan Pavel, together with the graphic artist Otte Wallish, submitted sketches, which were approved by the Minister of Finance, Eliezer Kaplan.
The singular form "pruta" instead of the plural "prutot" was erroneously minted on the five- and ten-pruta coins; this was corrected in a later series of the ten-pruta coins, but not the five-pruta.​

'pearl' is a small dot on the bottom of the reverse side:


Full metal composition: Aluminium 97%, Magnesium 3%
