On the front of the banknote, there is a presentation of a marble torso of the Egyptian goddess Isis (2 century BC), which was discovered in Ohrid, in one of the cult constructions dedicated to the goddess Isis. Isis was a goddess of fertility and motherhood, and was a protector of nature and magic. She was worshipped and respected even outside the borders of Egypt, even on the Macedonian soil, as witnessed by the numerous cult places, including the temple in the ancient town of Stobi, which is dedicated to her.

On the left half of the banknote, there is a presentation of a gold boat earring, dating back to the 4th century BC. It was discovered in a tomb of a young princess, found in the village of Beranci, Bitola, and is the best work of the then goldsmith's trade.

In the left upper part, there is a presentation of one part of ionic capital from the early 6th century, while in the left lower part, there is the marble bust of Titus Flavius Philoxenia (2nd century), a benefactor and high priest of the city of Heraclea Lyncestis (Bitola).

The peacock, the leitmotif of the back of the banknote, is a detail of the floor mosaic of the baptistery of the Episcopal Basilica in the ancient city of Stobi (4th - 5th century). This basilica is actually the oldest Christian temple in North Macedonia. Peacocks symbolize resurrection, immortality, and eternal life.
