 Low Mintage Israel 40th Anniversary of Independence Commemorative Coin

Israel's 40th Anniversary

The State of Israel was not established in a day. For more than sixty years before its establishment, during the period of Ottoman rule and the British Mandate, hundreds of thousands of pioneers came to Eretz Israel from all parts of the Diaspora to work the land and made the desert bloom. They established settlements, kibbutzim and towns and laid the foundations for national independence and renewed Hebrew culture. "If you will, it is no legend," said Herzl more than 50 years before the State of Israel was proclaimed. The legend became a reality. On the 5th of lyar, 5708 (May 14, 1948), 1,878 years after the destruction of the Temple by the Romans, the National Council, headed by David Ben-Gurion proclaimed the State of Israel.
