I wouldnt be surprised if is was carved first then a mould made, if you could see the back it would give a clue.

It looks like it's moulded. The colour looks a bit duller in the middle for some reason.

The money frog also called the three-legged toad or money toad comes from Chinese folklore. According to the legend, a wife of one of the eight immortals stole the elixir of immortality and drank it, turning her into a toad. Instead of two hind legs, the toad has the tail of the tadpole. Frogs and toads are associated with water, which is symbolic of wealth. It is common for a money frog to have a coin in its mouth, as an offering for the owner or the household where the frog resides.

I really like these domed gold Aussie coins that have informative scenes on them.

The boxes they come in are lovely too.

Here is them making them and some lucky owner unboxing.

 

 

 

 

This would be one of those coins where I wouldn't get it as of now because of its high premium, but I will at least say that it is a very well designed and beautiful coin.

I am so glad that the US Mint made this beautiful coin available to the public.

I concur that the Money Toad coin would only attract a very few Feng Shui diehards.

The 2009 US $20 Ultra High Relief St Gaudens Double Eagle 24K gold coin has held its premium over the initial US Mint release price.

I'm a big fan of the figurines from the Far East.  I have some of the Star Wars ones myself but those carry a licensing premium :(

Alfredo, because you linked those pictures to a inline account, which is linked to multiple social media accounts ... let's say remove the link bud for your own safety. 

I LOVE your collection,

Which ones should I delete? If unable, can the moderators edit my posts to unlink? Don't want to cause or get in trouble. The Mucha wallpapers, I use as phone background pics.

Some great pieces in here. I stumbled on this coin in a random search and it has quickly become a real favourite that I can only dream of adding in to my collection. It is such a simple idea that has just been executed brilliantly and was released as part of the Canada 150 celebrations in 2017
 

 

Oh man that is fantastic, thats a new one to me
