Israel 5 Sheqalim {1982-1985} 4S

front: Double cornucopia with pendant ribbon; the emblem of the State of Israel

The cornucopia became a symbol commonly used on ancient Jewish coins. In fact, the cornucopia was one of the most popular religious symbols of the ancient world.

It came into use on the coins of the Hasmonean (or Maccabean) kings, and later on the coins of Herod the Great and his son Herod Archelaus via Hellenistic influence. Coins of the Ptolemaic Kings of Egypt, Seleucid Kings of Syria, as well as a number of ancient Hellenistic city-states depicted cornucopiae.

Basically, the cornucopia was an animal horn, hollow, and thus used as a container for many purposes. As the overflowing “horn of plenty”, it contained agricultural fertility symbols such as ears of grain, bunches of grapes, and pomegranates.
