The reverse of a coin. Opposite of 'obverse'. The reverse of a coin may be identified by viewer convention, i.e. what commonly is expected to appear as a motif e.g. coat of arms, denominational value, incusum (in contrast to e.g. portraits, busts for the obverse). From a technical perspective the reverse is identified as having been struck by the upper die.
