Haganah 50th Anniversary medal (ND), 1970; struck in silvered bronze; minted by the Elisha medal company in Israel; weight: 91.8g; size: 59.5mm. Obverse bears emblem of the Haganah with legend "With one hand he undertook handiwork and with the other he held a weapon - Nehemia 4/11" and "The Haganah"; on reverse a large Star of David with the image of the Haganah's founder Eliyahu Golomb and all of the various units and activities of the Haganah written on each line of the Star. Though the medal is listed in Haffer a being from 1968, it cannot be both from this date and also in commemoration of the Haganah's 50th anniversary, as the Haganah was founded in 1970; as Golomb died in 1945 an issue date with a round number like 1970 makes more sense to commemorate both him and the Haganah. In UNC with lacquered surface; JTM-MM-7.
