MICHAEL | PATRON SAINT OF LAW ENFORCEMENT" is printed in raised text around the border of the coin. On the back of the coin is a police shield with a bald eagle at the top and flanked by two American flags. The same image of St. Michael is in the center of the shield. Text on the shield reads: "POLICE | OFFICER" and "ST. MICHAEL | PROTECT US."
