On the left is the mintmaster mark (a quill) and on the right the mintmark (the head of the Archangel Michael). In a semi-circle along the bottom edge of the inner part is the inscription “QUEEN ELISABETH COMPETITION”, while the years “1937 – 2012”, marking the 75th anniversary of the competition, are inscribed along the top edge.
