The obverse shows the famous masterpiece by Leonardo da Vinci. The portrait of Mona Lisa is entirely reinterpreted with its original colors. Mona Lisa wears a dark green dress in silk with yellow sleeves. She seems to keep watching the spectator also when he walks around the room because her line of sight is perpendicular to the plane of the image. The portrait is surrounded by a silver frame just as the original one is.

The reverse includes the common reverse of the series, which shows a mix of some French major museums. The portrait of Leonardo da Vinci stands on the left hand side with a compass, symbol of precision. Two main works of da Vinci are displayed alongside: the flying machine and the Vitruvian Man. Drawn around 1490, the Vitruvian Man represents the human body proportions according to the roman architect and engineer Vitruve. On the right hand part of the coin, a reversed writing paragraph (made to protect da Vinci’s inventions) is displayed. «500 ans» evokes the passing away anniversary of Leonardo da Vinci. The face value is represented on the common reverse of the series.
