These four coin banks having to do with Swiyzerland are on eBay now for a "Buy It Now" format. If you ask for expedited shipping, you should have one or two time for Christmas. The first one is a bit of a joke as it is a Swiss Cheese bank. The others are more authentic.

I note you have another question about the same item. It is a duplicate question to this one. You might want to ask for a refund on that one (But not this one, please).

Positive here, please.
