How many cents abroad?

In today's New Britain Herald there's an article on a proposed Mark Twain coin that would be minted in gold ($5) and silver ($1) in 2013.

My suggestions for the reverse side of the coin, since I assume its face will be HIS face:

Tom Sawyer
Huck Finn
A raft
A steamboat
A solar eclipse
A jumpin' frog
A picket fence (preferably half-painted)
A bunch of book banners

  1. From a colleague at CCSU:

    "So here's my Twain vote:

    Huck withouth Jim? No!

    A comet would be appropriate.

    A jay, acorn, and knot-hole would be the best."
