Here is what Chris Duane, the coins creator has to say about the round:

The Jesus Shekel is the first fractional silver for the Silver Shield Series. The most historically significant and powerful silver story in the world is the fact that Jesus Christ was betrayed for 30 1/2 ounce silver Shekels. This example powerfully demonstrates how undervalued silver is today on any historical basis.

Think about it, 15 ounces of silver is worth about $300 today. Would you betray your Messiah, friend, stranger or even your worst enemy for $300?! You can't even buy an iPad for $300 today, much less a man's life. If silver was valued at say $1,000 an ounce then you are near the prices you hear in those murder for hire plots on TV. The new half ounce Jesus Shekel is a physical reminder of the sacrifice of Jesus Christ and how cheap silver is today.
