On the obverse there is a circular grotesque composition `the story-teller and listeners` consisting of `Evenings on a Farm Near Dykanka` characters; in its centre there is a portrait of N.Gogol with a quill pen in the hand; above there are the Small Coat of Arms of Ukraine and the semicircular inscription НАЦІОНАЛЬНИЙ БАНК УКРАЇНИ (National Bank of Ukraine); beneath there is the legend 50 ГРИВЕНЬ (50 hryvnias).
On the reverse there is a circular grotesque composition illustrating the `Christmas Eve` story; in the centre there is the Christmas Star with the candle in the middle thereof whose flame is imitated by the yellow sapphire. Under the Star there is the semicircular inscription НІЧ ПЕРЕД РІЗДВОМ (Night before Christmas).
The commemorative coin is dedicated to the creative work of N.Gogol (Ukr. - Mykola Hohol) who made a poetical image of the Ukrainian people and with an extraordinary artistic skill exposed the original Ukrainian character with the sense of humour habitual for it. The lyrical representation of Ukraine made by him in `Evenings on a Farm Near Dykanka` will always remain an integral part of the European literature. The subject of one of the most outstanding stories of this collection, i.e. `Christmas Eve`, is the leitmotif of the coin composition.
