The obverse design of the coin depicts the façade of the Palais Lobkowitz and a simplified version of the title page of the "Eroica" symphony, with a quill below. The reverse of the coin displays a portrait of Beethoven, his signature, and the years of his life (1770-1827). A drawing from 1818 by August Kloeber served as model for the portrait on this side of the coin.
