Obverse: Portrait of Sir Douglas Mawson, Australian Antarctic explorer and geologist. Mawson's scientific contributions ranged over a wide area of geology and physics and included three expeditions to the Antarctic. The design depicted Mawson in his Antarctic gear against a background of geological strata formations which he studied in the Flinders Ranges of South Australia.

Reverse: Portrait of Australian Astronomer John Tebbutt.
John Tebbutt (1834 – 1916) was a pioneer astronomer who helped to lay the foundations for Australia's involvement in astronomy with the discovery of major comets. Tebbutt's portrait is thus set against representations of his observatory at Windsor, New South Wales, and elements to symbolise the sky and comets.
