By putting together the four coins, one obtains on the obverse side the stylised image of the coat of arms of the Moldavian Principality, inserted in a quatrefoil, combining medieval heraldic elements: the aurochs’ head, seen frontally, with;

    The crescent - on the 1-leu coin,
    The sun – on the 2-lei coin,
    The star, the princely crown above the aurochs’ horns and the heraldic rose – on the 5-lei coin, and
    The princely dynastic shield – on the 10-lei coin.

On the reverse side, the assembling of coins recreates the State coat of arms of the Republic of Moldova.
