A reflective type liquid crystal display device and a method of manufacturing the same. The liquid crystal display device comprises a transparent first substrate, a second substrate, a reflective metal film and liquid crystal filled in a gap between the first substrate and the reflective metal film. The reflective metal film is formed on a polymer resin layer which is coated on the second substrate. The polymer resin layer has in one surface small protrusions or depressions having a gently curved profile. The reflective metal film formed on the surface of the polymer resin layer and has small protrusions or depressions having a gently curved profile. The liquid crystal display device can thus display a bright picture with high contrast.
