Kirjeldus: mündil on kujutatud lõputute liikuvate lintidega ümbritsetud naise nägu.

See sümboliseerib naiste solidaarsust enda õiguste eest võitlemisel. Kujundust täiendavad kirjad „50 ANYS DEL SUFRAGI UNIVERSAL FEMENÍ” (50 aastat naiste üldise valimisõiguse kehtestamisest) ja „ANDORRA 1970 - 2020”. Ka need kirjad on kaasatud lintide liikumisse, et rõhutada tähistatava aastapäeva olulisust. Mündi välisringil on kujutatud Euroopa Liidu lipu 12 tähte.
