Why purchase this Silver GEM Proof 1987 Switzerland Glarus Shooting Festival Thaler?

This Silver Proof Swiss Shooting Festival Thaler was issued to commemorate the 1987 Federal "Battle Shoot" held in the canton of Glarus, located in east central Switzerland. Mintage of this 1987 proof struck from 0.8038 Troy oz. of .900 fine silver is reported to be only 3,200. The proof's smooth edge is lettered "GUT FUER 50 Fr. AM SCHUETENFEST," which means that the coin's 50 Franc face value was only redeemable at the Festival.

Breathtaking Depiction of the Female Personification of Switzerland

Helvetia is depicted on the obverse holding the Swiss flag in her left hand and a rifle in her right, with the sun rising between mountains in the background. The patriotic scene is surrounded by a beaded frame containing twenty-three stars and the legend "EINLOSBAR AM SCHUTZENFEST BIS 24. MAI 1987."

A magnificent eagle is illustrated on the reverse grasping a shield adorned with the Coat of Arms of Glarus. The inscription "EIDGENESSISCHES FELDSCHIESSEN GLARUS" encircles the image, with "1987" flanked by two oak leaves below.
