Israel 50 pruta

I am attempting to inventory my Grandfather's foreign coins. What does Mwc #9 mean on the coin pictured.

Thanks for your help

    My assumption would be "Modern World Coins" - the Yeoman catalogue, in other words. My very battered 1980s edition of Yeoman lists this coin as "8b(9)".

    The 50 prutah comes in two varieties: cupronickel (Y#8) and plated steel (Y#8b/9), If your coin sticks to a magnet, then it's Y#9.

    Waste no more time arguing what a good man should be. Be one.

    Value of coin is written on holder, $.50 in the 1970s ish. Not a lot more today.
