"JERUSALEM WINDMILL"

Ninth in the "Jerusalem of Gold" Bullion Coin Series

Legal Tender issued by the Bank of Israel

One of the first Jerusalem landmarks to crop up outside the Old City walls, the Montefiore Windmill was named for its funder, British Jewish philanthropist Moses (or Moshe in Hebrew)Montefiore. It was built in 1857 at the site where the Mishkenot Sha’ananim neighborhood would be established 12 years later.It was originally designed as a flour mill, and was part of Montefiore’s project to help the Old Yishuv become more self-sufficient.

Montefiore, who was devoted to promoting industry in the Holy Land, also built a printing press and a textile factory and undertook many more projects.The windmill was phased out of use as a flour mill in 1891, after the Jewish community began using steam-powered mills to grind their wheat.However, it continued to bear a cultural significance and during the 1948 War of Independence was used by Jewish fighters as an observation point.British authorities responded by bombing the windmill, an assault aptly titled “Operation Don Quixote.”
