The Liberian Coat of Arms occupies the obverse of the silver coin. It features a coastal landscape with a ship arriving in Liberia bringing the freed slaves from America. The national motto of Liberia ‘The love of liberty brought us here’ appears on a scroll above the shield. There are also the following legends: the face value of the coin, its issuing country and year.

The reverse features a realistic colored image of the Big Boy, one of giant freight locomotives manufactured between 1941 and 1944 and operated by the Union Pacific Railroad until 1959. In total, 25 Big Boys were built, eight of which still exist. The Big Boys are known to render important service in the Second World War by moving a huge volume of war material and thus making a huge contribution to the war effort.
