Description of obverse and reverse
One side depicts a circle composed of the growth rings of a tree and the human fingerprint. On the motif, the inscription Circles of Life, below the year.

The other side features the portrait of Queen Elizabeth II by Ian Rank-Broadley (initials: IRB); around it the name of the ruler, the issuing nation and the denomination.

A brief annotation
“Everything you see exists together in a delicate balance. As king, you need to understand that balance and respect all the creatures, from the crawling ant to the leaping antelope.” “But, Dad, don’t we eat the antelope?” “Yes, Simba, but let me explain. When we die, our bodies become the grass, and the antelope eat the grass. And so, we are all connected in the great Circle of Life.” – Mufasa & Simba, Disney’s Lion King.

In the 90s, Disney explained the eternal cycle in a refreshingly simple and accessible way. Essentially, it is nature’s way of taking and giving back life to earth, meaning if something dies it gives new life to another. The fusion of a human fingerprint with the annual rings of a tree is our attempt to symbolise the balance, respect and approchement between man and nature.
