CoinSilver Half Ounce 2022 Year of the Tiger - Ingot

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 half-ounce silver ingot with a face value of $1 was issued as part of the Lunar Series of coins to mark the Chinese Year of the Tiger (1 February 2022 to 21 January 2023).

The Mint says about it:
In 2022 we celebrate the third of the twelve-year cycle in the Lunar Calendar, with the Year of the Tiger. People born under this sign are said to have characteristics of determination, self-assurance and leadership.

Obverse

The obverse of the coin depicts the crowned old head of Queen Elizabeth II facing right, wearing the Royal Diamond Diadem crown and the Victoria Coronation necklace worn for her Coronation. This is her effigy known as the "Fifth Portrait" worldwide and "Sixth Portrait" in Australia, in "uncouped" version - showing the Queen's shoulders and not terminating at the neck as the normal version.

On the left, in small letters on the Queen's shoulder, the artist's initials J.C (for Jody Clark).

Running continuously around the rim is the monarch's legend, the date of issue and the face value: ELIZABETH II · AUSTRALIA 2022 · 1 DOLLAR ·.

The effigy, legend and face value are in a small circle, surrounded by pine branches.
