In accordance with Section 42(a) of the Bank of Israel Law, 5770–2010, new banknotes printed henceforth shall bear the facsimile signature only of the Governor (hitherto banknotes carried the facsimile signatures of the Governor and of the Chairman of the Advisory Council, which no longer exists under the new Law).
Thus, NIS 200 banknotes printed from 5770–2010, which the Bank of Israel is now starting to put into circulation, will bear only one signature, that of Stanley Fischer, the Governor of the Bank. Apart from that change, the new NIS 200 banknote will be the same in all respects as those currently in circulation.
Henceforth there will thus be four series of NIS 200 banknotes in circulation:
The first, dated 5758–1999, bearing the signatures of Governor Jacob Frenkel and the Chairman of the Advisory Council, Shlomo Lorenz.
The second, dated 5762–2002, bearing the signatures of Governor David Klein and the Chairman of the Advisory Council, Shlomo Lorenz.
The third, dated 5766–2006, bearing the signatures of Governor Stanley Fischer and the Chairman of the Advisory Council, Aharon Fogel.
The fourth, dated 5770–2010, bearing the signature only of Governor Stanley Fischer.
The Bank of Israel will advise when banknotes of other denominations bearing only the Governor’s signature are about to be put into circulation.
