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 decorative ironwork on the rail of the Belize City Swing Bridge. 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, Belize's Coat of Arms and the printed metallic feature. The vignette at the left of the note shows the swing bridge opened to allow a typical boat to pass through; above the vignette is a green foil Angel fish with the Jade Head intaglio overprint.
