Why purchase this Silver GEM Proof 1991 Switzerland Langenthal Shooting Festival Thaler?

This 50 Franc Swiss Shooting Festival Thaler proof coin was struck to commemorate the Bern Festival in Langenthal in 1991. The modern era series of Shooting Festival Thalers has been struck annually since 1984, memorializing each year's highly competitive marksmanship event. Mintage of this 1991 release is reported to be only 4,000 coins, struck by the Huguenin Freres Mint from 0.8038 Troy oz. of .900 fine silver.

Featured on the reverse is the full-length figure of William Tell, supporting a rifle in his left hand, stretching a flag behind him with his right. The image is encircled by a beaded border, along with the inscriptions "BERNER KANTONALSCHUTZENFEST" and "1991."
