ISRAEL 1984 10000 SHEQALIM P-51a , PMG 67 EPQ. Reverse: Golda Meir crowded by Soviet Jews outside Moscow synagogue, 1948 Dominant color: orange Dimensions: 138 x 76 mm Signatures: Moshe Mandelbaum, Governor Bank of Israel; Avraham Yosef Schapira, Chairman Advisory Council Printers (unverified): Royal Joh.Enschedé, Haarlem/Netherlands Date of issue: 27 November 1984. Born in present-day Ukraine and raised for 15 years in the USA, Golda Meir (affectionately commonly called "Golda" in Israel) was Israel's first - and until now only - woman prime minister, and ranks #3 on the world list (after Sirimavo Bandaranaike of Sri Lanka and Indira Gandhi of India). Before her premiership, Golda was Israel's first ambassador to the USSR, and served as foreign minister for ten years. Golda's preoccupation with the plight of Soviet Jewry, first during her short stint in Moscow, later as foreign minister, but primarily when she was prime minister, is reflected on the banknote's obverse by a stylized tree with intertwining branches forming a Star of David against a background of seven-branched candelabra and the words "Let My People Go" in microprint. During Golda's premiership the Russian authorities were forced to open the exit gates, resulting in a massive outflow of Soviet Jews, many of whom settled in Israel. The reverse of the 10000 Sheqalim banknote features the monumental photograph of Golda, then ambassador to the USSR, mobbed in 1948 by a crowd of thousands of Soviet Jews outside the Moscow Choral Synagogue, where she was about to attend High Holidays services. Golda's head can be seen in the foregro. The item "ISRAEL 1984 10000 SHEQALIM P-51a, PMG 67 EPQ. Superb Gem UNC" is in sale since Tuesday, August 3, 2021.
