The new shekel has been the official currency of Israel since it replaced the old shekel in 1986. One shekel is divided into 100 agora – and banknotes usually come in denominations of 20, 50, 100 and 200 shekels. The new shekel is also used in the Palestinian territories of the West Bank and the Gaza Strip.
