Reverse: On the reverse, two inscriptions, "E PLURIBUS UNUM" and "IN GOD WE TRUST," flank an eagle. The eagle is perched on arrows that are wrapped in a branch. The name of the issuing country, "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," arches over the image, while the coin's face value, "2 1/2 DOLLARS," is noted below.
