Why add this 5 Francs Switzerland Silver 1883 Shooting Festival Thaler to your collection

This Silver 5 Francs Swiss 1883 Shooting Festival Thaler was issued to commemorate the nation's annual competition, from which the coin gets its name. The coin would make an ideal addition to the collection of anyone with an interest in marksmanship or Swiss history.

Uniquely Swiss Design

Helvetia, long the personification of Switzerland, stands at the center of the obverse. She holds a sword in one hand, while the other touches the head of a bear. Partially obscure by her figure is a shield that bears the famed Swiss cross. Inscriptions along the rim encircle the image.

Along a portion of the rim on the reverse is a wreath. At the bottom is a rifle. In the distance, the mountains of the country rise high above the valley floor. Inscriptions at the top identify the festival, its location, and its year, reading, "TIRO FEDERALE IN LUGANO 1883."

Well Preserved Mint State 62

This coin was graded by the American Numismatic Association Certification Service (ANACS). They certified that the coin is in Mint State 62 condition, which means that its luster may be impaired and that bag marks and hairlines may be present, but that it maintains acceptable eye appeal.
