Dominating the front’s composition and occupying approximately two thirds of the note and leaning to the right, there’s a drawing of the schooner "Ernestina".
In the upper right corner, reading upwards, there’s the text “8 de Agosto de 1992” (August 8, 1992), the anniversary of the Ernestina’s first voyage with passengers to the U.S.
In the left third, 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. The same series number is also on the right side of the note, reading downwards.
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”.
