In a reverse design by Three Degrees Creative Group that features layers of auspicious symbolism, 13 bamboo-inspired vertical tiers are engraved with 100 variations of the word 'fu,' which means 'good fortune.' The highly polished surface is anchored with a symbolically rich red coloured square on the upper right side of the reverse featuring the Chinese character 'fu.' The image is framed by an outer raised edge engraved with a striking stylized design. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
