About This Set: Traditionally these coins were called Swiss Shooting Thalers but in reality they are medallic issues equal to the then current silver five francs. Great designs and popular with Collectors. We were fortunate in being able to recently acquire a collection of these issues, lovely original examples in old green holders. The Spencer Collection also includes a Gem example of the Gold 100 Francs Dated 1934B, Fribourg Shooting Festival, in an NGC MS65 holder, a large Gold Coin with Superb Strike and Velvet Fields. This is a work in progress.
