Bank Leumi Le-Israel Series

On May 1, 1951 all the assets and liabilities of the Anglo Palestine Bank were transferred to a new company called Bank Leumi le-Israel B.M., and it therefore became necessary to issue a new series of banknotes. These were almost identical to the Anglo-Palestine Bank series, except that the colour of some of the notes was different. The name of the currency was the "Israeli Pound".

The new money was introduced in June 1952, along with a 10 percent compulsory loan levied on cash holdings and current accounts.
