Israel 1/2 New Sheqel 1985 to 2012
These are very modern coins, Cynthia. In fact, Israel has only ever struck modern coins, as the country didn't exist in its current form before 1948! This keeps the values low, as millions and millions of these coins were struck, and all dates are readily available.
The dates on these coins are in Hebrew numerals. They all catalog at face value when circulated and a couple dollars when fully uncirculated. Currently, half an Israeli shekel is worth 14 cents.
Sometimes the coins are found in pristine condition inside collector's sets. These sell for around $5 or so.
