Translation: 21st Year of the State of Israel


The gold coin is smooth on the edge, bearing no inscription.

This commemorative coin, dedicated to the first Jewish soldier whose burial place remains unknown, bears the inscription from the book of Deuteronomy (34:6) depicting the death of Moses, whose sepulcher remains unknown. A special tombstone has been erected in memory of the missing soldiers, in the military cemetery on Mount Herzl in Jerusalem, inside the section of "The Missing Soldiers". The coin is also dedicated to our quest for peace; for the right of the Jewish people to live in freedom in their own land, in peace and independence, which has cost the lives of our soldiers.
