Why Order This Proof 69 Ultra Cameo 1990 Switzerland Silver Proof Winterthur Shooting Thaler?

While Swiss shooting thalers are still issued for modern shooting festivals in Switzerland, these special coins actually have a history spanning hundreds of years. This silver proof shooting thaler was issued in 1990 for the festival held in Winterthur. It weighs 25g and is made of .900 fine silver. Like other thalers, mintage of this one was limited. No more than 5,000 of these were released.

Helvetia and Winterthur

The design on the obverse depicts a pair of women. The woman on the right is Helvetia and the woman on the left personifies the city of Winterthur. Helvetia has a shield with a large Swiss cross and the woman symbolizing Winterthur is pictured with a sword.

On the reverse, a target is shown at the center of the design. A wreath surrounds most of the target and a pair of crossed rifles can be found here as well.

Proof 69 Ultra Cameo from NGC

The Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) was selected to grade this proof silver Thaler. This coin is nearly perfect, which is why it received the grade of Proof 69. Since it exhibits excellent visual contrast, it also received the Ultra Cameo designation.
