The Pemaquid Point Lighthouse (located in Bristol, Maine) can be seen on the left-hand side, situated high up on a rocky coastline. Behind it is a small house and what appears to be a fir tree. There are six beams of light being emitted from the lighthouse, three on the left and three on the right. In the bay below can be seen the Victory Chimes, a schooner which was used as a charter ship in Maine for many years. In total four large sails can be seen, one behind the other. The schooner is sailing from left to right, and there are two seagulls flying above it, one directly above it and the other to the right of the sails. At the top of the coin is written "MAINE" and below it is written "1820". At the bottom of the coin in small lettering is written "E PLURIBUS UNUM" and above it "2003".
