1954. KM-19, Utrecht Mint. 25.6mm. Mintage: 20,000. Obv: In center, seven-branched palmtree with two clusters of dates; "Israel" in Hebrew above, and Arabic below. Rev: Smaller Wreath of stylized olive branches, further from the edge; in center, "100 Prutah" in Hebrew. No Pearl Variety since the master dies did not contain the design. Different Date (1954). Berries on the wreath are smaller, and closer in, almost touching wreath at the top. Zeros in "100" are narrower and taller. Only 1,000 estimated to survive as the coin was withdrawn from circulation shortly after issue when it was found similar to 50 Prutah coins. Difference between Utrecht and Berne dies was only found in 1960, three years after coins release in 1957. NGC MS-63.
