A brief annotation
The Israel 66th Independence Day Coin issued by the Bank of Israel honors the 50th Anniversary of Israel's National Water Carrier. Israel is located in a region with relatively scarce rainfall and the country is therefore obliged to develop efficient means of water conservation. The National Water Carrier was developed for the purpose of bringing water from the wetter north of the country to the other regions, as far as the arid south of the country. In more recent years, Israel has developed additional means of maximizing its water sources, particularly by desalination.
