Commemorate the Historic Swiss Shooting Festival with this Beautiful 1991 Silver Thaler!
Switzerland is divided into Swiss cantons, similar to states in the United States. In the 1800s and early 1900s, these cantons held Shooting Festivals as a fundraiser to support orphans and widows of soldiers who had died in battle. Prizes were awarded to sharp shooters and commemorative medals were minted for each festival. Although the purpose for the festival has changed the tradition continues and draws 200,000-300,000 people every year.
Collectors will love the opportunity to be able to get their hands on the 1991 Switzerland Silver Shooting Thaler, part of the legendary coin series that sell out at the Swiss mint every year they are issued. This year’s version of the Shooting Thaler commemorated the 1991 Bern Festival in Langenthal. The obverse image features a bear on a shield and the reverse image features William Tell holding a rifle and a flag.
