Exquisite Mice Design by Ing Ing Jong
A portrait of Queen Elizabeth II by Jody Clark features on the obverse. The monarch wears her Royal Diamond Diadem, earrings, and a necklace. She is shown in right-side profile with her shoulders open to the holder. A rim frame with four sets of inscriptions encircles the image. "ELIZABETH II" and "AUSTRALIA" are on the top half, while "1 OZ 9999 AG" and "1 DOLLAR" are on the bottom half.
On the reverse, two mice forage on husks of corn. The design was created by Ing Ing Jong. To the right are the inscriptions "MOUSE" and "2020," as well as the Chinese character for "mouse."
