Obverse

The vignette at the left depicts the Spiny lobster, Panulirus argus which is native to Belize’s waters. It is one of our main exports and considered a delicacy. The Spiny lobster is an endangered species and, for its protection, has a closed season. The Jade Head is at the upper left corner. In the centre is a new portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth the Second, a design in blue and gold of the queen Trigger-fish, the queen Angel-fish, and Belize's Coat of Arms and the Silver fish at the lower left corner. On the right is the see-through feature which, when held up to the light, forms the complete design of the blue marlin.
