Why choose this 1997 Switzerland Schaffhausen Silver Proof Shooting Thaler in its original Mint capsule?

This shooting thaler was issued for the festival held in Schaffhausen in 1997. It is the silver proof version. The history of shooting thalers can be traced back to the 1800s. In Switzerland, the shooting sports are incredibly popular and even their most famous folk hero was a marksman. Mintage of the 1997 silver proof shooting thaler was limited to just 1,500 pieces.

Detailed symbolic Swiss designs

The design on the obverse features a stunning level of detail. It takes a few minutes to observe everything here. At the front of the design a man can be seen emptying a large vase. The face value is inscribed on this side.

The reverse shows a ram. It is wearing a crown and has a very long tongue. The inscriptions on this side state the year of issue and the location of the festival. The ram features a lifelike level of detail.

In original Mint capsule

This thaler is still in its original Mint capsule. It has not been graded or encapsulated by a third-party service.
