The 1000 franc coin was a commemorative shooting thaler issued by Switzerland beginning in 1984 and ending in 1994. It was eventually replaced as the higher valued coin by the 500 franc coin. These coins were equal to 1000 francs, being the highest denominated coin of the Swiss franc.

HistoryEdit

All of these coins were composed of gold. The first was minted in 1984, commemorating the shooting festival in Oberhasli. Every year after that, until 1994, the coins were issued annually. Today they are replaced by the 500 franc coin.
