Images of Frogs on coins - Question

Coins | user_7180

I purchased one of the 2016 Mark Twain coins for my grandson.  He has a fascination with all things frogs.  Now that he is understanding money and collecting I figured it was time to help him learn that he can easily combine his interests.  We can dive in together to learn more about Mark Twain and his stories starting with that famous Frog.  My grandson asked the question "How many coins have Frogs on them"?  Good question already!  I told him we could ask our ANA Community for help with the answers.  So, does anyone know of other coins with Frogs?  Thanks for your responses in advance!!!

As a kid, I went through a frog phase. Take advantage of it now. The frog phase passed but coins stuck.

That is the hope - that he can find the passion for the hobby - fun, learning, sharing, etc.

It is so cool to see his enthusiasm towards Numismatics in a way he never did before.

I forgot to say: If Mark Twain doesn't get a kid going, nothing will. He did it for me.

I hope it can inspire him in life like it has for us who enjoyed the stories.

In addition to the Standard Catalog of World Coins, I would search the internet. Search "frog on coin" and look at the images. To get you stated I found that Cook Island and Palau have a series of coins with frogs on them. Also found single coins from Niue, Saba, Australia and Canada. Most are very colorful and a little pricey. Happy Father's Day.

Thanks for the encouragement. I have been waiting a long time for this stage in life. My son and daughter never took to the hobby. Not from lack of effort.
