    Hello everyone,

    Since Covid 19 I have been working on building a world coin collection and loving it. Lots of research reading about different countries, eras conflicts, etc.

    Well, I just came across on that has stumped me a bit....

    it is a 10 agorot coin from Isreal I am coming up with 1984 but this design was not used until 1985...

    I know I am missing something but not sure where. Thanks in advance for your help.

    Well this stinks...

    I just found my own is 1987.

    Here is the site I am using to obtain the dates: Reading Coin Dates (

    Is there another site?

    The 1987 does not look anything like the date I thought it was, 1984.

    So is it the site or is it the engraver or is it option number 3, I have a lot more to learn, lol

    If you have the Krause catalog it shows all the dates at the beginning of the listing for Israel. I still struggle with them though. It's a hard country to read the dates because they don't always print them the same. I have this trouble with Thailand too.

    Thailand is a little tough but year 2500 is 1957, or Thailand date minus 543. Krause has a really good symbol conversion page as well, see the Thai-lao line. The older Thailand coins are definitely harder to read. 20221028_210759~2.jpg 20221028_210820~2.jpg

    For 4 and 7 on Israeli coins, 4 will have a much longer horizontal bar:
