Why purchase this 2019 Silver GEM Proof Switzerland Shooting Festival Thaler?
The Switzerland Shooting Festival is an annual celebration of marksmanship held in a different Swiss Canton each year. The release of low mintage silver and gold commemorative coins in honor of the festival is a traditional highlight of the event for collectors. This 37 mm diameter proof Thaler is struck from .900 fine silver in tribute to the June 2019 Festival and its host canton of Appenzell. Mintage is limited to only 1,500.
Incredibly Detailed Design Honoring Appenzell
Two bears are depicted on the obverse, closely resembling the creature on the Appenzeller coat of arms. The bears are portrayed standing face to face, as one cradles the branch of a tree. "VOGELINSEGG-SCHIESSEN APPENZELL VR" curves above, with "2019" below.
The reverse depicts a powder horn and bandolier hanging between a pair of crossed rifles at the base of a wreath, with the denomination "50 FR" inscribed at the center and purity below. The image is surrounded by the French and German inscriptions "CONVERTIBLE A LA FETE DE TIR" and "EINLOSBAR AM SCHUTENFEST," meaning that the coin is redeemable for 50 francs only during the festival event.
