Details

In the Balfour Declaration of 1917—a letter from British foreign secretary Arthur Balfour to Lord Rothschild, a leader of the Jewish community in Great Britain—His Majesty’s Government formally announced support of ”the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people.“ Under terms of the Sykes-Picot Agreement at the end of the Great War a year later, Great Britain assumed control of Palestine from the Arabs. British civil administration continued in ”Mandatory Palestine“ until Israel was formed in 1948. This bronze 1 mil coin, KM-1, was issued from 1927 to 1947. The inscription reads ”Palestine“ in three languages: Arabic, English, and Hebrew.
