The Bank of Israel announces that during the new NIS 20 and NIS 100 banknotes—the two remaining denominations series C of the New Shekel—are expected to enter circulation at the end of November 2017.

Within the framework of the preparations for issuing the new banknotes, automated-machine operators are required to complete the calibration of vending machines and banknote counting machines, through software which identifies new banknotes.

The Bank of Israel Currency Department calls on operators of automated machines and of banknote counting machines, who have not finished calibrating the machines they operate, to contact the suppliers of the machines very soon in order to calibrate the ones in their possession, so that the automated machines will be ready to identify and accept the new banknotes as soon as they are distributed.

The Bank of Israel Currency Department will publish additional information regarding the new NIS 20 and NIS 100 banknotes, and the security features they incorporate, shortly. Further information is available by email at, or by telephone at 1-800-300-018, noting your name and telephone number.​
