A sailor and miner show that the people work on water and land. The shield in the center shows Wisconsin's support for the United States.

In four sections surrounding the shield are representations of the state’s main industries Agriculture, mining, manufacturing and navigation. The cornucopia and pile of lead represent farm products and minerals.
