This is the surprising seventh issue dedicated to the 200th anniversary of the Brothers Grimm and their fables (1812-2012) and features the fable of the "The Frog Prince". Surprising in that the series was officially supposed to feature only six issues, whereas this is an official extension of the series.

In the tale, a spoiled princess reluctantly befriends the Frog Prince (meeting him after dropping a gold ball into a pond), who magically transforms into a handsome prince. Although in modern versions the transformation is invariably triggered by the princess kissing the frog, in the original Grimm version of the story the frog's spell was broken when the princess threw it against a wall in disgust. In other early versions it was sufficient for the frog to spend the night on the princess' pillow.

The new coin is the seventh in a series that was begun in 2012 to commemorate Grimm's Children’s and Household Tales. Previous coins have featured the Brothers Grimm, Snow White, Hansel & Gretel, Sleeping Beauty, Little Red Riding Hood, and the Town Musicians of Bremen.

The reverse features an eagle framed by the words "BUNDESREPUBLIK DEUTSCHLAND, the value and denomination, the letter "F" for the federal mint in Stuttgart, the year 2017 and the 12 stars of the European Flag. In addition, the words "SILBER 925" are minted on the coin.
