The obverse design captures the power and elegance of the legendary allrounder in action as he plays a glorious cover drive. Beside his image is the inscription “The Right Excellent Sir Garfield Sobers”, his official title. The circumferential inscription reads “Barbados – Home of the Masters” and carries the denomination.

The reverse features Barbados’ Coat of Arms  . The central element of this official emblem is a shield supported by a dolphin and a pelican, symbols of the island’s fishing industry. Two Pride of Barbados (Caesalpinia pulcherrima) flowers and one of the island’s Bearded Fig Trees (ficus Citrifolia) are depicted on the shield. Above the shied is a crest consisting of a raised forearm holding crossed sugar cane stalks above a helmet and mantling. A ribbon bears the inscription PRIDE AND INDUSTRY, the national motto.
