Coin Story

The Mossy Frog, Vietnamese Mossy Frog, or Tonkin Bug-eyed Frog (Theloderma corticale), is a species of frog in the Rhacophoridae family. It is found in Northern Vietnam and possibly China. Its natural habitats are subtropical or tropical moist lowland forests, subtropical or tropical moist montanes, freshwater marshes, intermittent freshwater marches, and rocky areas. It is a semi-aquatic, semi-arboreal species that is threatened by habitat loss. The common name of the mossy frog arises from the fact that its skin is a mottled green and brown that resembles moss growing on rock, and forms an effective form of camouflage. They have large sticky pads on their toes and a soft underbelly. As with most Tree Frogs, the females will grow larger than the males and can reach sizes of 7-8cm (3 inches). This species will curl into a ball when frightened, and play dead.

Reverse Design

The reverse captures a Theloderma Corticale frog in color, sitting on a branch. The branch is finely engraved into the silver proof background. You will find the following inscriptions on the coin: "World Of Frogs" and "Theloderma Corticale".

Obverse Design

The obverse features the South Sea Island of Palau’s coat of arms – a sea god with a mermaid and a boat typical of Oceania. The name of the issuing nation ‘REPUBLIC OF PALAU’ appears along the top edge and the face value of ‘$2’ is indicated in the exergue.
