Obverse

Colours: Black, green, and ochre
On the right shows the novel numbering and the see-through feature which, when held up to the light, forms the complete design of the Clock Tower housed in the Belize Court House as it appeared around 1910. 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 on the left shows the Clock Tower of the Belize City Court House building with the Jade Head in the upper left corner and the Silver fish in the lower left corner.

Reverse

Colours: Black and red
The main picture on the reverse of the note shows three historical buildings of Belize City, as they appeared around 1910. The Court House in the centre of the design was partially destroyed by fire in 1918 and the Clock Tower had to be replaced. On the right is St John’s Cathedral, the first Protestant Episcopal Church founded in Spanish America. On the left is Government House, which was the residence of governors during the Colonial period.
