I recently picked these up for my collection of Swiss Shooting Medasl and 5 Franc coins and though I would share. It's a lot of fun being able to combine 2 hobbies.

Nice ! I happen to have a bit of that in my stuff as well.

I love the artwork and aquire mostly coins and medals that express some interesting art in their theme. I do not limit myself to Swiss, or to shooting medals, but mostly what I buy is 19th century or early 20th century coins and medals. A few shooting medals have fallen into my bag of goodies as a result. Or medals that have firearms on them as part of the theme.

I like the ones you have - they are indeed fine examples and thanks for sharing.
