Golda Meir Banknote

Branches in the shape of the Star of David

Branches in the shape of the Star of David surround the Menorah on the Israeli 10,000 shekel banknote, which was issued in November 1984 and presented the portrait of Golda Meir on one side and the image of the crowd that turned out to cheer her in Moscow, on the other.

In addition we see below the same banknote issued in 1985 after the conversion of the 10,000 NIS to 10 NIS. This is what I call history.
