Emil Ranzenhofer designed the JNF fund raising Golden Book Certificate. His name is clearly visible on certificates dated before 1915. Emil designed the format of the certificate and the two side panel illustrations. He did not design the center panel. The Golden Book Certificate was instituted to engender larger donations in the form of a commemorative offering. The name of every person or society contributing an appropriate amount of money would have their name inscribed in a memorial book called the "Golden Book of the National Fund". The original book seems to have been lost, but there is some indication that the cover of the Golden Book was also designed by Emil Ranzenhofer. These certificates are still being used today by the JNF fund. The image of the Golden Book certificate has also been used on stamps and postcards of the JNF.
