The obverse of the coin features the same Queen Elizabeth II portrait that appeared on the original series. It was the second effigy of the queen to appear on Canadian coinage and features the young queen wearing a gilt tiara. Rim inscriptions on either side of the image together read, "ELIZABETH II D.G. REGINA" (Elizabeth II, by the grace of God, Queen).
Alex Colville's reverse design bears a left-side profile of a mackerel. The narrow fish design is simple and horizontal. Inscriptions on this face include the face value of the coin, "10 CENTS," the country of issue, "CANADA," and the commemorative dates, "1867-2017."
