    EDITED...first method of entry non-viable.

    I know it's a bit early, but this being my first year at the helm, I wanted to get an early start in order to address any hiccups that may arise.

    Please DM me your mailing address and the exchange(s) you want to participate in. I will send a confirmation message of your choices to ensure you are in. Posting you are in is not confirmation, you must get the message from me!

    Deadline to sign up for the US exchange(s) is December 2, 2022.

    Deadline for the international exchange sign up is November 21, 2022 to account for longer international shipping times.

    Use $15 USD as your target gift value/amount as in previous years, but you are more than welcome to go above. This is a suggestion to make sure everyone gets at least something of the same value!


    Must be in good standing with previous exchanges and have a post count of at least 200+ here on CoinTalk.

    2. Must ship out a numismatic-related gift in a timely manner. The goal is to get everyone their gift by Christmas Day.

    3. Please post photos of the gift(s) you receive in this thread and be sure to thank your Secret Santa!

    There are three possible exchanges to sign up for this year. #1 is the main exchange, open to only US members.

    Exchange #2 is for US members who are feeling EXTRA generous and would like to participate in a second Secret Santa. You must sign up for Exchange #1 to enter into #2.

    New this year is exchange #3. Open to ANY member in good standing with at least a 200+ count. US members willing to ship internationally may sign up for this exchange by itself or also under #1 and #2. Signing up under this exchange means you agree to ship a gift internationally. Any non-US CoinTalk members MUST sign up under this exchange.

    In the event you do not get a gift, please DM me soon after Christmas and I'll be sure to have Santa make an extra run by your house! International members, please give a week or two longer.

    Loose ends:

    When a sufficient number of people have entered, I will begin to distribute addresses to participants so that ample time is available to select that PERFECT gift! This will likely be about the middle of November, earlier for the international exchange.

    I will include the CT member's username so that one may peruse their postings to get an idea of their likings, or you could just send a random gift. I don't know of any member that doesn't like getting coins! The options are unlimited and do not only have to be US coins. They can be world, exonumia, books, etc.

    I'm participating in all three exchanges this year and hope that you will register for one or all of them too! This is my favorite CT tradition and I am super excited to be heading it this year!

    Looks like we're getting some form submission errors on elfster, so please send me your name, address, etc. here as a dm in case this persists. I'll take over the reigns from there.

    @Joshua Lemons you deserve a medal for undertaking this task. I'm sure it's not an easy job.

    Just for consistency sake, and to make sure people are stepping up to the plate in equal fashion, how much is the minimum gift Santa is supposed to spend on his/her recipient?

    Edited to reflect the standard $15 gift suggestion of previous years. As always I am open to any critiques to make this year run smoothly and that everyone has an enjoyable experience.
