Why purchase this 2009 GEM Proof Swiss Shooting Thaler?

The Swiss Shooting Thaler has been a highly sought-after collectible since its first minting in 1842. This gem proof quality silver coin was struck in .900 fine silver with a 50-franc denomination.

Honoring the Obwalden Festival

From 1842 until the beginning of World War II on the European front in 1939, the classic era of the Swiss Shooting Thaler honored the traditional shooting festivals held throughout the Swiss Confederation. The modern era of the coin began in 1984 for the Zurich "Field Shoot" in Oberhasli and continues with a new design issued each year.

The 2009 Swiss Shooting Thaler commemorates the Obwalden Shooting Festival in the heart of the Swiss Alps. The obverse of the coin depicts Helvetia, the female symbol of Switzerland, leaning on a shield decorated with a key and pointing toward an unseen target while an archer readies his bow and arrow to shoot. The inscription "KANT. SCHUTZEN-FEST OBWALDEN" is inscribed under the bow and arrow with "2009" inscribed at the bottom. The reverse of the coin features a thick wreath with two rifles crossed at its based surrounding the denomination inscription of "50 Fr." The design is encircled by the inscriptions "CONVERTIBLE A LA FETE DE TIR" and "EINLOSBAR AM SCHUTZENFEST" and a ring of tiny beads.
