Stunning Shooting Festival design

Helvetica, a symbol of Switzerland, stands on the reverse holding her sword in one hand and a laurel wreath in the other. She is presenting the wreath to the winner of the festival, who is on one knee holding his rifle. "KANTONALSCHUTZENFEST GLARUS," which is German for "Glarus Cantonal Shooting Festival," is inscribed at the top.

The reverse of the coin features a wreath made from oak leaves and laurel, which mostly encircle an inscription of the coin's face value. Completing the circle are two crossed rifles, from which hang a marksman's powder horn and a bandolier.

Perfect Proof 70 Ultra Cameo

This coin was struck perfectly and remains flawless as seen under 5x magnification, as evidenced by its perfect Proof 70 grade from the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC). Its sharp contrast between frosted devices and mirrored fields also earned it certification as an Ultra Cameo.
