Switzerland’s Schützenfest is an annual shooting festival held in a different canton, or state, each year. Dating back to medieval times, the festival’s main feature is a target shooting competition, introduced as a way of encouraging citizens to increase and maintain skills that become invaluable in times of war. On the obverse, a Swiss marksman prepares to take aim while the female personification of Switzerland, Helvetia, watches over him. The motto “Kantonalschützenfest Glarus” announces the canton of Glarus as the location of the 2017 festival. The reverse displays the coin’s legal-tender value of 500 francs over two crossed rifles.
This half-ounce gold Swiss proof has already sold out at the mint, so if you want to secure one or more for your collection graded by Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) as perfect Proof-70 Ultra Cameo (PF70 UC), now’s the time to pull the trigger!
