Description

The obverse features an image of Tell with his famous bow and arrow. The reverse includes the traditional Swiss coat of arms over crossed muskets, surrounded by the crests of 23 Swiss states.

William Tell is a semi-legendary character from Swiss history. He was a rebel against an invading lord, refusing to bow to the usurper. As punishment, the crossbowman was required to shoot an apple off the head of his son in a single shot. If he missed, both Tell and his son would be killed.

Tell accomplished the feat, keeping a second bolt near at hand. When asked why, Tell said he was preparing to shoot the lord in case he missed. Furious, the lord had Tell tied up and taken by ship to the lord’s castle.

A fierce storm broke out, and the ship was nearly lost. So the sailors released Tell, begging him to use his expert skills to pilot the ship. Tell steered the ship to a rocky outcropping and leaped overboard to safety. He then chased down the tyrant lord and assassinated him, sparking a rebellion.  William Tell remains a symbol of rebellion in Switzerland and Europe.
