Dominating the front’s composition and occupying approximately two thirds of the note and leaning to the right, there’s a drawing of an endangered indigenous bird of Cape Verde – "Acrocephalus Brevipenis Keulemans" -.

In the upper right corner, reading upwards, there’s the text "5 de Junho de 1992" (June ly 5, 1992), in celebration of World Environment Day and Year of the Environment.

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.

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

In the other third, and in the upper right corner, there’s an ear of corn, one of the elements of the Cape Verde Escudo, which appears on a 1.2 mm thick silver band.

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”.
