The banknote has a brown image coloring on multicolor under-print. It depicts the image of Bishop D. Belchior Carneiro to the bottom right side of the front. The front also has the seal of Banco Nacional Ultramarino (possibly the National Maritime Bank) of Lisbon Portugal, which displays a sail ship. There is also the text CONSELHO DE GESTAO in the center of the front.
