Donald Trump’s face will feature on an Israeli coin marking the 70th anniversary of the country’s independence.
It depicts the US President alongside the biblical King Cyrus, who allowed the Jews to return to Jerusalem 2,500 years ago.
The coin, which cannot be used as currency, is also a token of gratitude for Mr Trump’s decision to move the US embassy from to Jerusalem, KOBI reported.

The standard version, made from pewter and plated with silver, will be sold for £36.
