Designed by engraver Richard Yeo, the engraving shows the king facing to the right with the inscription:
"GEORGIUS III DEI GRATIA"
The reverse of the coin shows the crowned ornate shield. The design earned the coin the nickname of Guinea "Rose Shield" thanks to the ornate embelishments surounding the crowned shield of arms.
