Switzerland Schaffhausen Shooting Thaler  1865
Switzerland Schaffhausen Shooting Thaler 1865

Gorgeous coin, Mike. It is an old 5 franc shooting thaler from the city of Schaffhausen in northern Switzerland. The full inscription reads Eidgenossisches schutzenfest in schaffhausen.

The specimen in our main picture is in great shape. It was sold for 160 euros, about $210 US dollars, by world-renowned auction house Fritz Rudolf Künker GmbH & Co. KG, Osnabruck (Lobke & Wiedemann, Stuttgart, image owners). We chose the Kunker image for educational purposes: it is especially beautiful and therefore quite valuable. Coins of lesser quality are worth much less.

Approximate catalog values run like this:

worn: $40 US dollars
average circulated: $70
well preserved: $220
fully uncirculated: $450

Please read our Important Terminology page (link at upper left) to understand how catalog values work.

Coin: 14741 , Genre: Central Europe North South
