In the present paper, we consider the Ising model with mixed spin- (1, 1/2) on the second order Cayley tree. For this model, a construction of splitting Gibbs measures is given that allows us to establish the existence of the phase transition (non-uniqueness of Gibbs measures). We point out that, in the phase transition region, the considered model exhibits three translation-invariant Gibbs measures in the ferromagnetic and anti-ferromagnetic regimes, respectively, while the classical Ising model does not possess such Gibbs measures in the anti-ferromagnetic setting. It turns out, that like the classical Ising model, we can find a disordered Gibbs measure, therefore, its non-extremity and extremity are investigated by means of tree-indexed Markov chains.
