Unfortunately we do not have a box or certificate.
The other side of the coin was achieved in 1958 on Israel's tenth anniversary. At that time, Israel struck its first official State medal, an Israel Liberata –"Israel is Free"–coin, in gold and silver editions of 10,000 each. Ote Wallish's design shows a typical Judea Capta coin surrounded by two chains, with the words "Judea Capta" in English letters and "The dispersion of Judea" in Hebrew on one side.
Israel Liberata, a medal issued in 1958 to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the independence of the State of Israel, contradicts the message of Judea Capta. One side of the medal reproduces a variation of the Judea Capta coin: A Roman soldier with helmet and shield stands next to a palm tree. To the right of the tree, a mournful female figure dressed in a toga has laid down her shield. The Hebrew words at the top of the outside border translate "the Dispersion of Judea" and the rest of the border is embellished by chains. On the reverse side of the coin, the palm tree is flanked by two Israeli pioneers. In place of the words "Judea Capta" are the words, "Israel Liberata." The outside band reads "Ten years for the freedom of Israel."
On the other side of the coin, the Woman of Judea waves a sheaf of corn next to the palm tree familiar from the Roman coin. Instead of an armed soldier, an Israeli pioneer beside her carries a hoe. The words inside the rim, encircled by ten stars of David, read Israel Liberata , and in Hebrew, "Ten years for the freedom of Israel."
