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'.
