The reverse of the coin features a full-length image of a sword-bearing Helvetia, the female personification of the Swiss Confederation, next to a kneeling man bearing a rifle.

Proofs are struck using a specialized process involving polished dies and planchets. Proof coins are always in demand with collectors. Gem is the adjectival grade and would equate to a Proof 65 grade or higher. This excellent example included a Certificate of Authenticity.
