Comments about 2011 Israel Western Wall 1 oz .9999 Gold Bullion Coin:
Perhaps the design isn't as striking as that of the 1st Israeli bullion ("Tower of David") coin, but this coin is still highly attractive. Its limited mintage of 3,600 ensures its longer-term value. Israel has only limited minting facilities itself, and tends to outsource the physical minting of its more complex coins to other mints - in this case, to the Royal Dutch Mint. I unreservedly recommend this coin as instrinsically attractive and a sound investment.
