* This 1Fr coin was struck to commemorate the Vaud Constitution of August 10, 1845. It was issued at the Vaud Shooting Festival of 1846. Some collectors consider it a shooting taler because it was issued at a shooting festival, while others consider it Switzerland’s first commemorative coin, not for a shooting festival.

Also see “Shooting Medals” section for “So-called Talers”, silver medals that circulated as coin due to size and silver content in the 19th Century. These are listed in the Delbert Krause book.

20th-21st Century Shooting Talers

These coins are issued as legal tender during the respective shooting festivals, and thus bear a monetary denomination. Many of the 1934 and 1939 5Fr issues circulated after the festivals, since silver coins were scarce and were the same size and silver content as regular 5Fr coins. 50Fr coins are silver. 100Fr, 200Fr, 500Fr and 1000Fr coins are gold. Designs of the gold coins are the same as the silver counterparts, except for denomination. Note: 1000Fr coins contain 0.75233 oz. AGW, and 500Fr coins contain 0.45 – 0.5 oz AGW, depending on fineness and weight, which varies from year to year as experiments continue. Catalog listings of the modern shooting taler series may be found in newer editions of Krause 20th C. “Standard Catalog of World Coins”, “Unusual World Coins” 4th-6th Editions, “Swiss Shooting Festival Coins 1842-2015”(BEST), and the new HMZ Katalog offered in the “Books and Albums” section.
