Israeli Military Industries 20 years of service medal of appreciation, 1968
46770282

Israel Military Industries ("Ta'as") 20 years of service medal of appreciation, 1968; struck in gilded brass(?) by the Shekel medal company (etched on rim); weight: 26.4; size: 35mm. Obverse bears the State's coat of arms with legend "To commemorate years of service in the military industries 1948-1968"; on reverse is the emblem of IMI. Probably issued to employees working at IMI since the founding of the State (1948) as opposed to the more usual tie-in between a round numbered Independence Day and a separate special event, as this medal does not bear the official emblem of the 20th Anniversary of Israel's Independence (seen on many other types of commemorative medals). In UNC; JTM-MM-11.

Entry ticket to the First Knesset/1st assembly of the Israeli Parliament 1949
52370357
Entry ticket to the "First Knesset" - the first assembly of the elected Israeli Parliament, 9 March 1949; uniface; numbered 993; size: 10.5 x 7.9cm. The first meeting of the then titled "Constituent Assembly" ('Ha Asefa Ha Mekhonenet') took place already on 14 Feb. 1949, and there it voted to change its name to the "Knesset" and to call the first assembly of that body the "First Knesset". With the establishment of that Assembly, the existing Provisional State Council ('Moetzet HaMedina HaZmanit') dissolved itself and entrusted its powers to the Assembly, making it the State of Israel's legislative body. When this Knesset subsequently convened on 9 March, this was a day after David Ben-Gurion established the State's first government. Between 14-17 February the Assembly convened at the Jewish Agency building in Jerusalem; from 9 March to 25 December 1949, the Knesset convened in Tel Aviv - here, at the Dizengoff House, and thence again in Jerusalem.
