Franklin Mint

A chief producer of all things commemorative, the Franklin Mint crafted celebratory items from coins to die-cast figurines for the better part of a century. Today, their production reminds collectors of the best of the bygone years of the 20th century.

Founded in 1963 by Joseph Segel, the Franklin Mint, headquartered in Wawa, Pennsylvania, first launched their brand with commemorative coins minted in gold and silver. The success of the original numismatic lines led the Franklin Mint to expand into uncirculated legal tender coin sets featuring national and international designs.

Today, the Franklin Mint is still beloved as a prestigious chronicler of Americana, with homes across America still treasuring collectibles created by the brand.
