The Swiss Schutzenfest (Marksmen's festival) began as crossbow competition between the cantons of the Old Swiss Confederacy during the 15th century. The modern day event takes place in rotating hosting cantons and attracts approximately 50,000 marksmen over a four-week period. This Silver Proof Shooting Festival Thaler celebrates the 2017 Glarus Cantonal Shooting Festival. The 37 mm diameter coin is struck from .900 fine silver, weighs 25 grams, and has a very low mintage limited to only 1,200 coins.

The coin's denomination of "50 FR." appears at the center of the reverse encircled by a wreath of oak and laurel; a powder horn and bandolier hang from a pair of crossed rifles below. The inscribed French and German text declares the coin redeemable during the festival.
