Obverse: Displays the Barbados coat of arms along with the face value and purity. The Golden Shield of the Arms carries two Pride of Barbados flowers (the national flower) and the bearded fig tree (ficus citrifolia). On either side of the shield are the supporters – on the right is a dolphin, symbolic of the fishing industry and on the left is a pelican, after Pelican Island, a small outcrop later incorporated into the Deep Water Harbour development. Above the shield is a helmet and mantling and on a wreath is the arm and hand of a Bajan holding two crossed pieces of sugar cane, symbolic of the sugar industry. The coat of arms carries the motto "Pride and Industry."
Reverse: Features a view of a pelican from behind with its wings spanned out, standing on a pier post. Above the pelican are graphic images representing the clouds and below are waves of the ocean. The inscription "CARIBBEAN SILVER," purity, and year of issue are also on the reverse.
