                  Bank of Israel Governor Karnit Flug presented two new banknotes Wednesday to President Reuven Rivlin ahead of their circulation Thursday. The two note are an NIS 20 banknote, bearing the portrait of poetess Rachel Bluwstein, and an NIS 100 banknote bearing the portrait of the poetess Leah Goldberg.

                  An NIS 50 banknote, bearing the portrait of the poet Shaul Tchernichovsky, was circulated in December 2014 and an NIS 200 banknote in December 2015 bearing the portrait of the poet Nathan Alterman.

                  “I am honored and proud to emphasize that for the first time in any series of Israeli banknotes, there will be equal representation between men and women,” Flug. “In this issue as well we are at the forefront, ahead of many countries in the world.”

                  Flug said that the new banknotes along with the previous notes in the series present advanced standards of security, innovation and accessibility, and contain a variety of security features against counterfeiting.
