Overview - ILS

The Israeli Shekel is the currency used in Israel and its ISO code is ILS. The Shekel was introduced in 1986 which replaced the ‘old shekel’ which had seen is value drop dramatically against the USD in the mid 70s through until the mid 80s.


Since the beginning of the century the ILS has increased in value some 20% against the USD. Following the hyperinflation suffered in the 70s and 80s the signing of free trade agreements (making Israeli products more available to the rest of the world) has helped inflation drop and the currency strengthen. In the future we would expect the currency to continue in this manner as recently discovered natural gas reserves will increase their economic stature.


The currency is not produced in Israel, as the country has no mint. Currently, the coins are minted in South Korea and the banknotes are produced in Switzerland.
