The modern era series of the Switzerland Shooting Festival Thaler has been minted since 1984, characterized by stunning patriotic imagery and low mintages. This Silver Proof Shooting Festival Thaler celebrates the 1998 Schwyz Shooting Festival. The magnificent 37 mm diameter coin is struck from .900 fine silver, weighs 25 g, and has a very low mintage, reported to be only 1,500 coins.

Spectacular historic imagery

A Renaissance Swiss soldier is featured on the obverse, wearing chain mail and a plumed hat, armed with a spear. Inscribed "EINLOSBAR AM SCHUTENFEST" and "ZU 50 FRANKEN," meaning that the coin is redeemable for 50 francs only during the festival event.

The reverse depicts a powder horn and bandolier hanging between a pair of crossed rifles, with a shield adorned with the Swiss cross in the background. The image is surrounded by the inscriptions "SCHWYZER KANTONALSCHUTZENFEST" above, "1998" below, and framed by a beaded border.
