Lot 80373
Israel/Palestine: tallion commemorating 25th anniversary of Tel Aviv's founding, (1934); tin; no maker-mark; size (tallion only): 20.5mm x 23.25mm; weight: 2.3g. Square sized uniface tallion depicting emblem of the city, with 4 lines of text in Hebrew: "25th Jubilee Tel Aviv" and the city's motto "I will build you and you shall be built" (quotation from the prophet Yirmiyahu). The emblem depicted on the tallion was an amended version (1927) of an official design created by Nahum Gutman (1925), after several other submissions were rejected - and the city's motto is credited to him as well (the emblem was modified again in the late 1930's to incorporate 7 Stars, and again in 1950 when Tel Aviv and Yaffo become a joint municipality).
