The obverse design by Canadian artist Charles Vinh combines a number of auspicious Chinese motifs to confer a powerful blessing for everlasting prosperity, wealth and good fortune. At the center is a feature that sets this coin apart: a square hole, a traditional motif used in Chinese minting to represent the Earth and the national landmass. Two Pi Yao or Pixiu figures stand on either side of the hole and are seen in profile, with one facing left and the other facing right. Enhanced by different finishes, the intricate engraving re-creates the elaborate appearance of this mystical protector and symbol of wealth.

The rounded shape of the Wu Lou gourd is depicted on the obverse and reverse, where this centuries-old symbol of longevity and health appears alongside the ornamental Chinese knots that speak of never-ending felicity. These “endless” knots also complement the stylized scrollwork on the unique reverse design, also by Charles Vinh. Above the central square hole appears the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt. The effigy is engraved within a smooth polished cartouche that is detailed on each side with stylized scrollwork. This scrollwork is continued in elaborate detail on the bottom half of the field.
