In 1985, coins in denominations of 1, 5, and 10 agora and ½ and 1 were introduced. In 1990, 5 coins were introduced, followed by 10 coins in 1995. Production of 1 agora pieces ceased in 1990, too, and they were removed from circulation on 1 April 1991.  An 2 coin was introduced on 9 December 2007. The 5 agora coin, last minted in 2006, was removed from circulation on 1 January 2008.

In April 2011, it was reported that new coins would be minted that would use less metal and thus lower costs. Counterfeiting would also be harder. The Bank of Israel is considering dropping the word "new" on the planned coins series. If approved, this would be the first replacement of all coins since the introduction of the new shekel coins in September 1985. (Information From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)
