For more than a century, the Swiss have celebrated their independence from foreign rule and the close sense of community that ties each of its culturally unique cantons together into one Swiss Confederation, through a series of shooting festivals.
Throughout the years, these festivals have been marked by the issuance of collectible medals known as Swiss Shooting Thalers.
In this CoinWeek video we describe this area of collecting and feature a few modern issues that you might want to know about.
