Commemorate the Historic Swiss Shooting Festival with this Beautiful 2017 Silver Thaler in Flawless Condition!

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.

This year’s version of the Shooting Thalers commemorated the 2017 festival that took place in the canton of Glarus. The obverse side of the coin features the female national personification of Switzerland Helvetia, standing over a Swiss marksman and has the motto “KantonalSchützenfest Glarus” engraved on it. The reverse side of the coin features an image of a wreath with two crossed rifles and has its denomination of 50 Swiss Francs.

  • Flawless Condition-- Manufactured using highly polished planchets and struck multiple times creates a beautiful frosted look on the raise parts of the design, with a mirror-like finish in the background. Graders at the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) found that this coin lacked any flaws visible under 5x magnification and gave it perfect grade of Proof 70 Ultra Cameo.
  • Classic and Modern Era Coins-- The classic era of Shooting Thalers was from 1842-1939. After the production of these coins was paused due to World War II, the Shooting Thalers were reintroduced in 1984 and the modern era for these coins began.
