ILS

The ISO 4217 currency code for the Israeli Shekel.

ILS

ISO 4217 representation for the Israeli new sheqel. The ILS replaced the old sheqel in 1985 due to the former currency's high rate of inflation. The new sheqel is a floating currency, and because it is traded on the Merc, it is one of the few currencies for which futures and other derivative contracts are widely available. The new sheqel is a hard currency, indicating consumer confidence on the foreign exchange markets. See also: Currency pair.
