The main obverse design features the Irish Harp separating the date and legend. The legend “EIRE” or Ireland has been used on Irish coinage since 1939.
The reverse, designed by Thomas Ryan, features an image of a standing Irish Red Deer Stag facing left encircled within a beaded edge. On the outer periphery is the denomination “PUNT” and “1£”. Just below the deer’s hind leg are the designer’s initials “TR”.
