The reverse of the coin depicts a scene of Phileas Fogg and his butler Passepartout riding through the jungles of India on an elephant, with a mahout as their only companion. On their way they encounter monkeys (macaques), large whelks (similar to tukans), ruined temples, Buddhas carved into the mountains and lots of jungle vegetation. The highly decorated elephant's garments are coloured, using UV printing technology, in red and gold to highlight the centre of the scene.

The obverse of the coin features all the means of transport used by our protagonists to achieve their feat of circumnavigating the Earth in just 80 days (although they did not realise until day 80 that it had actually taken them 79 days) and win the bet. The reverse features the steamship, steam train, hot air balloon, camels and American stagecoach, all with the great clock of the Elizabeth Tower (known worldwide as Big Ben) at the top marking five minutes to 12:00 on the 80th day.

The coin comes housed in a beautiful wooden presentation case and includes the Certificate of Authenticity. The matching serial number is etched on the rim of the coin.
