Why Add This Proof 70 Ultra Cameo 1998 Switzerland Schwyz Silver Proof Shooting Thaler with an Exclusive Switzerland Label to Your Collection?

The shooting sports are so popular in Switzerland that coins are actually issued to mark their annual shooting festivals. These have been issued for major Swiss shooting festivals since the 1800s. The silver proof offered here was issued for the Schwyz festival in 1998. A low mintage limit was set for this proof, only 1,500 were issued.

Swiss Soldier and Crossed Rifles
