Silver Half Ounce (1/2 oz), Coin Type from Australia - detailed information

Silver Half Ounce (1/2 oz), Coin Type from Australia (issued 1981 - )
Coin TypeSilver Half Ounce (1/2 oz)

The Australian half ounce silver piece (abbreviated as 1/2 oz and designated with Ag for "silver") is a bullion and commemorative coin format; it has face value of either 1 dollar or 50 cents. Uniquely, in Australia there are two mints authorised to strike legal tender: the Royal Australian Mint (which also makes the country's circulating coinage) and the Perth Mint which only makes collector and bullion coins, as well as other bullion products.

Both mints endeavour to create coins with attractive designs, and to introduce new designs and themes often, in order to raise the numismatic value of the coins over the value of previous metal used.
