The obverse of the coin features a stylised Vytis, the coat of arms of the Republic of Lithuania, formed as if from a swarm of bees and a honeycomb full of honey. The honeycomb was foregrounded using a pad-printing technology. It also bears the inscription LIETUVA (LITHUANIA), the year of issue (2020), denomination (€1.50) and the mintmark of the Lithuanian Mint.


The reverse of the coin depicts an old Lithuanian beekeeping tradition of harvesting honey from tree hollows: having climbed in to a tree, a beekeeper, his head shielded with a beekeeping veil, is harvesting honey next to a swarm of bees. It also bears the inscription DREVINĖ BITININKYSTĖ (TREE BEEKEEPING).
