Why Add This PF70 UC 2018 Switzerland Winkelried Silver Proof Shooting Thaler to Your Collection?

Shooting thalers are issued by Switzerland to commemorate their largest shooting festivals. In Switzerland, the shooting sports are very popular, similar to football in the U.S. This silver proof shooting thaler has a face value of 50 Swiss francs. It was issued for the 2018 festival in Winkelried. Historically, mintage of these coins is kept quite low.

Impressive Helvetia Design

On the obverse, Helvetia can be seen holding a wreath. This is presumably for the winner of the festival. Helvetia is the classic female personification of Switzerland. The landscape behind her features a stunning level of detail. The date and festival location are inscribed on this side.

The face value is displayed on the reverse. The face value is surrounded by an ornate wreath. The lower portion shows the purity inscription along with a pair of crossed rifles.

NGC Certified PF70 UC

This silver proof shooting thaler is completely free of imperfections, which is why it was awarded the grade of Proof 70 (PF70) by the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC). Since this specimen also possesses a high level of visual contrast it was given the Ultra Cameo (UC) designation.
