Why add this virtually flawless Silver Proof 2009 Switzerland Obwalden Shooting Festival Thaler to your collection?
The modern era of Swiss Shooting Thalers was introduced in 1984, thus ending the hiatus of production of the collectible coins since 1939. The coins celebrate the annual marksmanship competition, held in different locations across Switzerland. Typically minted in very low numbers with patriotic design themes, the coins are redeemable at their face value of 50 Francs only while the competition is held. Commemorating the Obwalden Festival in 2009, this 37 mm diameter proof is struck from .900 fine silver, with a weight of 25 g, and has a final reported mintage of 1,500.
Magnificent image details
The obverse depicts Helvetia, the personification of Switzerland, seated, leaning on a shield, beside a standing archer poised to release an arrow. Inscribed "KANT. SCHUTZENFEST OBWALDEN" and "2009."
The reverse features the previously issued design of "50 Fr." framed by an oak and laurel wreath, and crossed rifles below.
