The Israeli new sheqalim is the official currency of Israel since 1986 when it replaced the old shekel; the legal tender is also used in the Palestinian territories of the West Bank and the Gaza Strip. The official currency symbol; ₪. The name is derived from the Hebrew root (š-q-l), meaning “weigh”. After the economic crisis in the 1980s, the Bank of Israel, commanded by the Government of Israel, decided to remain under more efficient and cautious fiscal and monetary policies, which allowed the introduction of market economic reforms, achieving a more competitive Israeli economy. In 1985, a new series of banknotes were introduced in denominations of ₪5, ₪10, and ₪50, followed by ₪1 and ₪100 in 1986, ₪20 note in 1988, and ₪200 note in 1992. Coins later replaced the ₪1, ₪5, and ₪10 notes. The second series, introduced in 1999, replaced the 2005 series and introduced the ₪500. 

In 2012, The Bank of Israel announced a new series of banknotes which was introduced between 2012 and 2017; 20₪, ₪50, ₪100, and ₪200. 

The 200 Israeli new sheqalim note front design features the portrait of Nathan Alterman (1910 – 1970) was an Israeli poet who was highly influential in Socialist Zionist politics, on a background of autumn leaves and a stylized sketch of an open golden book.

The reverse of the note illustrates a night scene with a large full moon illuminating a leafless tree and an excerpt from Natan Alterman’s poem, “Morning Song.” The lettering on this side of the note is in the Arabic and English languages. This note is part of the 2015 – 2020 series, and its color is blue.
