Set Description:

Reform Coinage:Type Set 1949-1957 is very important set in the HOLY LAND Complete COLLECTION, representing the PRUTA coinage of the first years of the State of Israel.
Since the State of Israel was created on May 14, 1948: the Monetary system being in use was
1,000 Mils = 1 Pound.
Reform Coinage:
1,000 Pruta (Prutot) = 1 Lira
started in 1949 till December 31, 1957 (until Monetary Reform commencing January 1, 1958, when AGORA Denomination was introduced).
This Early Israeli Set is NOT technically the complete TYPE Set since actually 19 (nineteen) Types of PRUTA coinage exist per Krause/Numismedia Catalog:
KM# 9 - 12, 12a, 13.1, 13.2, 13.2a, 14 - 20, 15a, 18.1, 19.1, 20a.
These 19 Types represent 27 (twenty seven) coins (including all varieties, Circulation Issues only).
The better (correct) name for this Set would be
'PRUTA COINAGE SET 1949-1957 by DENOMINATION, Circulation Issue' (consisting of 8 coins).
You may see the complete PRUTA Coinage Set (all 29 coins including MIL Coinage of 1948-1949) in my CUSTOM SET:
'HOLY LAND COLLECTION: ISRAEL: Early Years 1948-1957'.
