The coin’s central field depicts a poppy above the years 2014-18. Below these years appears the inscription ‘The Great War Centenary’, under which are the signature mark of the Master of the Mint and the mark of the Brussels mint, a helmeted profile of the archangel Michael.
The top of the central field features the trilingual inscription ‘BELGIE — BELGIQUE — BELGIEN’.
The coin’s outer ring depicts the 12 stars of the European flag.
