Naughty / Krampus
If you’ve been good then you have nothing to fear. If you’ve misbehaved...hopefully you’re good at hiding. It is told that Krampus, the half-man/half-goat counterpart to Santa, punishes misbehaving children by beating them with birch branches. Some disappear, stuffed into Krampus’s sack, and hauled off to his lair. He is shown on the coin baring his terrible fangs.
Nice / Santa
Known for his jovial nature and generosity, this legend is known for bringing gifts to the homes of well-behaved children. He goes by many different names: Sinterklaas, Santa Clause, Kris Kringle, Father Christmas, Papa Noel, and Père Noël. He is said to live at the North Pole where he spends the year making toys with the help of his elves. He's shown on the coin with a fur coat, and crown of holly leaves, and exhaling a frosty breath.

The product is treated to look as if it has been handled and circulated. This process is done by hand, and it is both an art and a science, coloring, and patinas will vary. No two are exactly the same! Coins are struck one at a time in the USA using antique machinery and traditional coining techniques. A colorful description is included with history and facts about the coin.
