Why add this Silver Proof 2017 Switzerland Shooting Festival Thaler to your collection?

This Silver Proof Thaler commemorates the 2017 Switzerland Shooting Festival held in the capital city of the Swiss Canton of Glarus, located within the Swiss Alps of east central Switzerland. The festival celebrates legendary Swiss marksmanship. Struck as legal tender of Switzerland from .900 fine silver, with a weight of 25 grams, this spectacular Shooting Festival Thaler measures 37 mm in diameter, and has an extremely low mintage of just 1,200.

Beautifully engraved details

The obverse depicts the festival winner kneeling to receive a laurel wreath crown from the goddess of Victory, with the Swiss Alps rising in the background. The German inscription "KANTONALSCHUTZENFEST GLARUS," which translates as "Glarus Cantonal Shooting Festival" appears above, with "2017" to the right.

The reverse features a wreath constructed of oak and laurel leaves surrounding the coin's denomination of "50 FR." Additional inscriptions in French and German declare that the coin is redeemable during the shooting festival.
