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

Obverse

the relief image showing the State Coat of Arms of the Republic of Belarus in a circle surrounded by a geometric pattern, beneath — the year of issue (alloy standard on the silver coin); and circumferential inscriptions: at the top — РЭСПУБЛИКА БЕЛАРУСЬ (THE REPUBLIC OF BELARUS) and at the bottom — 20 РУБЛЁЎ (20 RUBLES) on the silver coin and 1 РУБЕЛЬ (1 RUBLE) on the copper–nickel one.

Reverse

against the background of the decorative panel incorporating the symbols of two countries — the image of a stylized stamp with circumferential inscriptions therein: БЕЛАРУСЬ – КІТАЙ (BELARUS – CHINA) and 20 ГАДОЎ ДЫПЛАМАТЫЧНЫХ АДНОСІН (20 YEARS OF DIPLOMATIC RELATIONS); and in the center — the image of a friendly handshake.
