It’s the first coin in this series. It’s called the Tower of David and it’s issued by the Bank of Israel. It does have legal tender status in the State of Israel. The designer is Meir Estelle. The obverse bears a roaring lion with a curved tail. This was taken from a 2,800 year old ancient seal dating back to the 8th century BCE, which was discovered in archaeological digs at Megiddo (Armageddon). The lion is the symbol of Jerusalem and the Kingdom of Judah. The reverse has the Tower of David, the famous landmark near Jaffa Gate in the Wall of the Old City of Jerusalem which was constructed during the 2nd century BCE and rebuilt in succession by the Christian, Muslim, Mamlik and Ottoman conquers of Jerusalem. Today it houses a museum and has varied cultural events associated with historical and cultural Jerusalem.

(ICMC) when it was first announced. I’ve had it tucked away since I received it. I did open and look at it but I did remove any of the packaging. I can’t get a photo of the obverse so I used the packaging for that. The coin itself is sealed in a plastic round, then shrunk wrapped so the obverse is hidden. I took photos of all of the packaging except for the ICMC box it was shipped in.
