Set Description:

This Set is secondary to my main Set
'HOLY LAND COLLECTION: Early Israel Type Set 1949-1957 #1(Highest score) MS'
and represents the Highest graded coins remaining after completion of my Set #1.
Coincidentally you may consider this Set as the example of 1949 Yearly Set by Denomination - the 1st year of official coinage of the State of Israel.
NOTE: while the 25 MILS coin was produced during 1948-1949, only starting the PRUTA coinage in 1949 the word 'ISRAEL' appeared on all Denominations of PRUTA coins.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
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'.
