The [[bronze]] 25 chhertum piece features a {{wp|en|vishvavajra}}, a symbol of Vajrayana Buddhism, in the center of its obverse. Consisting of two crossing {{wp|en|vajra}}s (dorjes), the vishvavajra also appears in the {{wp|en|Emblem of Bhutan|state emblem}} of Bhutan, and in context represents harmony between secular and religious power. The English name "BHUTAN" appears to the left of the symbol, where it is arched in a clockwise direction along the rim. Its Dzongkha equivalent, "{{size|1.5em|འབྲུག}}" (Wylie: '''brug''), is written in the same direction at the coin's right periphery, and the Gregorian year of minting, "1991", is engraved counterclockwise at the bottom rim.

A large numeral "25" is displayed in the middle of the reverse, the English word "CHHETRUM" written counterclockwise along the rim below. An additional rendering of the coin's face value, the Dzongkha inscription "{{size|1.5em|ཕྱེད་ཀྲམ་ཉརེ་ལྔ}}" (Wylie: ''phyed kram nyare lnga''), appears at the top of the reverse, traveling clockwise along the upper periphery.
