- Golden Enigma series
The Frog Prince; or, Iron Henry is a fairy tale, best known through the Brothers Grimm's written version; traditionally it is the first story in their collection. Although the story is best known today through the Grimm Brothers' rendition of it, parts of it may extend back until at least Roman times; a version of the story is apparently referred to in Petronius's Satyricon, in which the character Trimalchio remarks that, “qui fuit rana nunc est rex” (“The man who was once a frog is now a king.”). Other scholars, however, argue that this may actually be a jab at the emperor Nero, who was often mockingly compared to a frog
The reverse of the coin depicts a beautiful golden frog, over background with a princess. On the left of the reverse, the inscription: “GRIMMS MÄRCHEN”. On the right, the inscription: “FROSCHKONIG” – the name of the fairy tale in German. The obverse of the coin depicts the German Coat of Arms and the inscriptions: “BUNDESREPUBLIK” – the issue country, “2018” – the year of issue, “ 20 EURO” – the face value and “SILBER 295” – the fineness of the Silver
