Israel Lion of Judah Coin Collector's Set
In ancient times, lions were not a rare sight in the Holy Land. They roamed the land freely. Various cultures and civilizations adopted the lion as a symbol of power and royalty. Representing the ancient Hebrew kingdom, the Lion
of Judah is such a symbol. Images of lions have been found on mosaics and ancient buildings such as the city gates of Tel Hazor which was recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2005. This set is complemented with a small bottle of soil from the Holy Land.
