Why add this 1999 Silver Proof Switzerland Shooting Festival Thaler to your collection?

This 1999 release of the highly collectible Switzerland Shooting Festival Thaler commemorates the Wallis Festival in Sion. The Festival Thalers serve as a magnificent historical record of the traditional marksmanship competition held since the 15th century. Having a mintage of only 1,500 pieces, the 1999 Switzerland Shooting Festival Thaler proof weighs 25 g, struck from .900 fine silver, measuring 37 mm in diameter.

Gorgeous commemorative design

Helvetia, whose image represents the female personification of Switzerland, is portrayed on the obverse within a mirrored oval, standing elegantly posed, supporting a shield with her right hand and reaching forward with her left. The image is surrounded by a beaded border, along with the inscriptions "CONVERTIBLE EN 50 FRS" and "A LA FETE DE TIR."

The inscriptions "17e TIR CANTONAL VALAISAN," "17. WALLISER KANTONALSCHUTZENFEST" and "SION 1999" frame the image composed of a shield with thirteen stars, an oak and laurel wreath, and crossed rifles on the reverse.
