Obverse

in the center – the relief image of the State Coat of Arms of the Republic of Belarus and circumferential inscriptions: at the top – РЭСПУБЛІКА БЕЛАРУСЬ (THE REPUBLIC OF BELARUS) and at the bottom – the denomination: 20 РУБЛЁЎ (20 RUBLES) on the silver coin and 1 РУБЕЛЬ (1 RUBLE) on the copper-nickel one; along the rim – the stylized wreath of leaves and flowers of cornflower and clover representing the inflorescence of crafts closely intertwined to form the endlessness of a circle as a symbol of longevity and happiness; on the left side – the year of issue and on the right side (on the silver coin) – the alloy standard.

Reverse

in the center, against the background of a stylized Belarusian rural scene, — the representation of a pitcher filled with water and a woman carrying pails to the left and wooden huts to the right of it; and at the top — the circumferential inscription: ГАНЧАРСТВА (POTTERY).
