Silver Half Ounce 2013 Newborn Baby, Coin from Australia - detailed information

The Australian half ounce silver piece (abbreviated as 1/2 oz and designated with Ag for "silver") is a bullion and commemorative coin format. 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.

This silver half-ounce coin by the Perth Mint is intended as a gift on the occasion of a newborn baby.

The Mint says about it:
"The arrival of a newborn baby is a jubilant occasion for the whole family. To capture this precious moment forever, The Perth Mint is proud to release a stunning Newborn Baby coin in a gift card.

In western folklore, parents have told their children for centuries that babies are delivered by a stork. As an Australian take on this legend, the coin’s reverse depicts a cute Australian kookaburra carrying a sleeping newborn baby in a swaddling cloth."

In small letters below the head, the artist's initials IRB (for Ian Rank-Broadley).

Around the effigy is the monarch's legend, the date of issue and the value: ELIZABETH II · AUSTRALIA 2013 · 50 CENTS ·.
