I've accumulated a few Israeli coins now and I notice that every year many coins have a limited Hanukkah commemorative edition. I've yet to see any of these turn up in my noodling and am curious as to their origins. Are they only released during the 9 days of Hanukkah? Are they in general circulation or get collected beforehand by hoarders? Are they given as presents during Hanukkah? What prices do they fetch?
Sorry for so many questions.
