Why purchase this 1995 Silver Proof Swiss Shooting Thaler in Mint Condition?

Originally minted in 1842, the Shooting Thaler was created in Switzerland to honor its popular shooting festivals hosted throughout the Swiss Confederation. This silver GEM Proof coin in a 50-Franc denomination was struck in 25 grams of .900 fine silver.

For silver collectors and shooting enthusiasts alike

Although production began in the 1800s, minting of the classic era coin concluded in 1939 at the onset of World War II. Production restarted in 1984 to commemorate the Zurich "Field Shoot" in Oberhasli and continues with a new coin produced each year honoring a different shooting festival.

The 1995 silver proof coin commemorates the Federal Festival in Thun. The obverse of the coin features an archer wearing a wide belt and holding a bow and arrow. The inscription "EIDG. SCHUTZENFEST THUN 1995." is encircled in a ring of beads. The reverse of the coin features Schloss Thun (Castle Thun) built in the twelfth century, a rifle, the Swiss flag and the Bern coat of arms. The inscription "EINLOSBAR AM SCHUTZENFEST" and the denomination "50 Fr" are surrounded by another ring of beads.

Beautiful GEM Proof quality

Coveted among silver enthusiasts, Swiss Shooting Thalers consistently sell out each year at the Mint. This GEM proof quality silver coin, part of the 5,000-coin mintage in 1995, is encased in an original mint capsule to preserve its beauty.
