Why add this perfectly-struck 1991 Silver Proof Switzerland Shooting Festival Thaler to your collection?

The modern-era Swiss Shooting Festival Thaler has been minted yearly since 1984, commemorating the annual marksmanship competition and the changing location of the event. The series is recognized for its stunning designs honoring Swiss patriotism and heritage, and for its dramatically low mintages, ranging from 1,000 and 6,300 pieces each year. This 50 Franc proof coin was struck to memorialize the 1991 Bern Festival in Langenthal. The exciting coin weighs 25 g, struck from .900 fine silver, and is among a final reported mintage of only 4,000 coins.

Dramatic historic imagery

Legendary Swiss marksman William Tell is depicted on the reverse, grasping a rifle and flag, surrounded by a beaded border and the inscriptions "BERNER KANTONALSCHUTZENFEST" above, "1991" below.

The obverse illustrates the coat of arms for the Swiss canton of Bern, featuring a bear advancing left, with a laurel wreath in the background. Inscribed "EINLOSBAR AM SCHUTZENFEST" and "LANGENTHAL."
