History

  • The Israeli Lira was the currency of the State of Israel from August 1948. From the 1960s onwards, a debate raged over the non-Hebrew name of the currency, resulting in a law ordering the currency to be replaced by the Shekel. The government introduced the Shekel on 24 February, 1980, at a rate of 1 Shekel = 10 Lirot.
  • The Shekel (like the Lira before it) suffered frequent devaluations against the US Dollar and other foreign currencies. After a period of high inflation and as a result of a 1985 Economic Stabilization Plan, the Israeli New Shekel was introduced on January 1, 1986, at a rate of 1 New Shekel = 1000 Old Shekalim.
  • Since the introduction of the Israeli New Shekel, the Bank of Israel and the government of Israel have maintained careful fiscal and monetary policies, resulting in a stable currency.
  • The Israeli New Shekel has been freely convertible from January 1, 2003, and is exchanged by consumers in many parts of the world. On May 26, 2008, CLS Bank International announced that it would settle payment instructions in the currency, making it fully convertible.
  • Derivatives trading in the currency started on the Chicago Mercantile Exchange on May 7, 2006. This makes the Israeli New Shekel one of only a dozen currencies for which there are widely available currency futures contracts in the foreign exchange market.
  • Israel has no mint to produce its banknotes, which are printed in Switzerland, or coins, which are minted in South Korea.
