For 50 years, the Franklin Mint has been produc-ing beautiful collectibles now found in millions of homes across the world. It all started in 1964 when founder Joe Segel minted a silver coin honoring the late General Douglas MacArthur, and soon the company was creating collectible coins, commem-orative medals, sparkling pendants, decorative Christmas ornaments and other valuable art. The product line then expanded into entertainment, with breathtaking creations like the Civil War chess set, the “Star Trek” checkers set, a “Gone with the Wind” collector’s plate series, porcelain sculptures, ceramic dolls, jewel-studded knives, die-cast ve-hicles and more. Take a stroll down memory lane with this beautifully illustrated coffee-table book celebrating the first 50 years of the Franklin Mint!
