Attention collectors, coin buffs & enthusiasts!!! - - - -

This is a very unique and interesting modern medal, rich with history, depicting Israel’s liberation in 1948. IGCMC (Indira Gandhi Conservation Monitoring Centre) reissued a medal in 1958 to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the independence of the State of Israel.- - - - -

Since the time of the Jewish rebellion, which erupted in 66 CE (Common Era, in the year of the Lord, a non-Christian culture), they have gone through hundreds of years of tribulation and suffering. This medal represents the anniversary of the independence of the State of Israel.
