Dominating the front’s composition and occupying approximately two thirds of the note and leaning to the right, there’s the effigy of Amilcar Cabral, the founder of Cape Verdean nationality.

In the upper right corner, reading upwards, there’s the text "20 de Janeiro de 1989” (January 20, 1989).

In the left third part, there’s the watermark with the effigy of Amilcar Cabral. In the upper left corner, there’s the stylization of an ear of corn, one of the elements of the Cape Verde escudo, which coincides with the same element – by transparency – on the back of the note.

In the lower left corner and immediately after the ear of corn, there’s the series number, consisting of figures which are differentiated and aligned horizontally.

Covering about two-thirds of the note and leaning to the left, there’s a composition alluding to some means of communication.

In the same third, beyond the watermark with the effigy of Amilcar Cabral and above the silver band, there’s the text “A Lei Pune o Contrafactor”.
