The Silver Crane is composed of .999 fine silver. It weighs approximately 31.1 grams and measures 39 millimeters in diameter. The coin is based on the designs of the 10 ICU coin produced only two months prior to the introduction of the Silver Crane. An image of a Japanese Crane (Grus japonensis) in flight, which symbolizes that the micronation goes beyond international boundaries, is displayed on the obverse. "WIRTLAND" is inscribed along the coin's periphery, beginning to the left of the crane and arching upward until stopping near the bird's beak. Below the image is the coin's symbolic value (inscribed solely as "2") and date of minting. The coat of arms of Wirtland, which consists of a large "W" inside a crowned escutcheon above the Latin words "VIRTUS, NON COPIA VINCINT" (English: "Courage, not multitude, wins"), is featured on the reverse. Above the arms is the URL of Wirtland's website, WWW.WIRTLAND.COM, and below it is an indication of the coin's silver purity, printed first as ".999 SILVER" and then as "1 TROY OZ.". Both sides of the coin were engraved by American sculptor Daniel Carr, the individual responsible for the production of fantasy amero coins and the designs of the New York and Rhode Island state quarters, and the pieces themselves were produced at Carr's Moonlight Mint in three finishes: cameo proof-like, satin, and matte.
