This issue celebrates the Easter Lamb as both a symbol of innocence and rebirth, but also as one of the most venerable and resonant symbols of Christianity. Jesus was both a shepherd to his flock and the "Passover lamb" that was sacrificed.

The reverse shows a lamb lying down among flowers and meadow grass. Above it is a rendering of a relief sculpture found on the stonework of the parish church of St. Egidi in Styria. The lamb holds a banner attached to a cross, used in Christian iconography to represent Jesus' victory over death. The obverse features the number 5, indicating the five-euro denomination of the issue. Surrounding this feature are nine shields that represent the nine federal provinces of Austria. Inscribed along the rim of the design is REPUBLIK ÖSTERREICH and EURO.
