The official currency in Israel is the new shekel - abbreviated to ILS - and is issued by the Bank of Israel. New shekel is divided into 100 agora.
The ‘new shekel’ is also referred to merely as the ‘shekel’, and was formerly known as the ‘new Israeli shekel’. The new shekel is also legal tender in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip.
The term ‘shekel’ originates from an ancient biblical currency of the same name that was used in ancient Israel and related to the weight of certain grains or barley.
The most commonly used bills for the Israeli new shekel are the 20, 50, 100 and 200 notes.
