Introducing our exclusive new collection of State of Israel Diamond Anniversary Coins. This series of magnificent, limited-edition coins pays tribute to the Jewish State and its citizens, while marking 75 years of Israeli independence, since its founding on May 14, 1948.
After 2000 years of exile, the miraculous return of the Jewish nation to its ancient homeland is the fulfillment of biblical prophesy. Israel’s awe-inspiring success in just 75 years shows how Israel has become a true source of blessing, inspiration and ‘light unto the nations’.
‘Operation Uvda’ was the final IDF campaign in Israel’s War of Independence. The highlight took place at Umm Rashrash, known today as Eilat. The iconic moment was the raising of the Israeli victory flag at a captured Egyptian police station.
After Israel’s victory, the commander of Israel’s Negev Brigade noticed that the unit was missing their Israeli flag. He immediately ordered his soldiers to make one by hand, using a white bed sheet and blue ink!
The iconic image of Israel’s final moments of victory, depicted on the Diamond Anniversary Coin, shows the Israeli ‘ink flag’ being raised by the brigade commander at the abandoned Egyptian base. The war was over!
