This card reminds me of the Brothers Grimm tale of the Frog Prince. The princess in that story lost her favorite golden ball (represented by the single coin engraved between the toads) in a deep spring. As an adult she would have learned to take better care of her things and respect the natural world with an open mind, even what seems to be just a "nasty" frog.

Another moral of the story is to keep your promises. Be true to your word and you develop a reputation as someone who can be trusted. Although, as BodhiSeed noted, that very trustworthiness could be abused to subtly manipulate others... or to unintentionally accept too much responsibility and over-commit yourself.
