Adorable Piglet Design by Natasha Muhl
The obverse design is familiar to collectors of coins from Tuvalu. It is Ian Rank-Broadley's right-side portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. Rank-Broadley shows the monarch wearing a tiara and earrings. Her name, "QUEEN ELIZABETH II," spreads throughout the top half of the rim, while "50 CENTS" and "TUVALU" are included on the bottom half of it.
On the reverse is a colorized piglet. It faces to the right of the holder and stands against a background of various gifts. To the right are the Chinese character for "pig" and the words "YEAR OF THE PIG." The date, "2019," joins the weight, "1/2 OZ," and purity, "9999 SILVER," in the lower left.
