The coins are round in shape with the raised rim on the obverse and the reverse. The coins’ edge is grained.

Obverse

at the top – the relief image of the State Coat of Arms of the Republic of Belarus; in the center – the image of a cat standing on the base of a semicircular decorative composition including the symbols of the sun, fire, and hearth and home – the symbol of a family; beneath – the year of issue (alloy standard shown on the silver coin) and denomination – 20 РУБЛЁЎ (20 RUBLES) on the silver coin and 1 РУБЕЛЬ (1 RUBLE) on the copper–nickel coin; and at the top – a circumferential inscription: РЭСПУБЛІКА БЕЛАРУСЬ (THE REPUBLIC OF BELARUS).

Reverse

a symbol of a house represented by the fragment of a wall with a window over the crossbar of which there is a key – a symbol of opening a door of a house. The window trimmer is presented as a composition from the ornaments–symbols related to the notion "house–warming" by implication. The opened shutters and curtains symbolize house and home and hospitality; and at the top – a circumferential inscription: НАВАСЕЛЛЕ (HOUSE–WARMING).
