Why purchase this flawlessly graded Silver Proof 2003 Switzerland Shooting Festival Thaler?

The Switzerland Shooting Festival is a yearly sporting completion that celebrates the legendary marksmanship skills of the Swiss. A newly designed Silver Proof Thaler is issued to commemorate the event each year, which is redeemable for its face value only during the festival days. This impressive proof, struck in homage to the Basel Festival held in 2003, is among the remarkably low mintage of just 1,500 coins. The 25 g, 37 mm diameter proof is struck from .900 fine silver, and has a face value of 50 Francs.

Design commemorating the California Gold Rush

The reverse features the portrait of General John August Sutter, a Swiss military man who traveled to America to seek his fortune, establishing Sutter's Fort in California, where gold was discovered in 1848. The obverse depicts a miner panning for gold, with inscribed denomination, year, and festival location.
