Why add this perfect 2019 Silver Proof Switzerland Shooting Festival Thaler to your collection?
The modern series of gold and silver Swiss Shooting Festival Thalers has been issued annually since 1984, commemorating the marksmanship event which has been held since the 15th century. The 2019 release celebrates the Festival's host canton of Appenzell, a region located in the northeast of Switzerland. The magnificent 37 mm diameter proof is struck from .900 fine silver, its mintage an astoundingly low 1,500 pieces.
Impressive Symbolic Imagery
The obverse features a pair of standing bears facing each other, one cradling a tree branch. The bear image is adapted from the Appenzeller coat of arms. Inscribed "VOGELINSEGG-SCHIESSEN APPENZELL VR" and "2019."
The coin's denomination "50 FR" appears at the center of the reverse, encircled by a wreath anchored by a pair of crossed rifles, powder horn and bandolier, with purity below. The inscriptions "CONVERTIBLE A LA FETE DE TIR" and "EINLOSBAR AM SCHUTENFEST" declare the coin redeemable for face value only at the shooting festival.
