On the right shows the novel numbering and the see-through feature which, when held up to the light, forms the complete design of HMS “Merlin” a battleship which participated in the Battle of St. George’s Caye in 1798. 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. The vignette at the left shows the relief of Thomas Potts from the medallion on his tomb which was once situated on St George’s Caye with the Jade Head at the upper left corner and the Silver fish at the lower left corner.
The main picture is a collage of scenes from St George’s Caye prior to 1931. On the left is one of the bathing kraals and on the right is one of the larger summer residences. In the centre is the tomb of Thomas Potts, a Senior Magistrate of the settlement, a contour of the caye dated 1764, and an old cannon used during the Battle of St George’s Caye. This caye was the first official settlement of the country of Belize.
