The Old Israeli Sheqel (also known as simply the Shekel, Hebrew: שקל) replaced the Israeli pound which was used until 24 February 1980. It was the currency of the State of Israel between 1980-1985 and was replaced by the Israeli New Shekel at a ratio of 1000:1 on 1 January 1986. The old Shekel was short-lived due to its hyperinflation.
