The origin of the Franklin Mint
In 1964 Joseph Segel founded a private mint in Wawa, Pennsylvania, to manufacture and sell Franklin Mint privately minted gold and silver commemorative rounds and medallions. The company expanded to include making jewelry, diecast vehicles, dolls, and other collectibles. Over the years the company has repeatedly been bought and resold, and presently under ownership by the Sequential brands group based in New York City. The Franklin Mint no longer exists and is only operational as a brand name. The empty Franklin Mint Museum is still seen located next to the former headquarters in Wawa, Pennsylvania.
During the 1970’s and 80’s, the Franklin Mint began to produce legal-tender coins. It minted a combination of bullion and non-bullion proof and uncirculated large and small denominations for several countries, in particular for Panama, as well as for other island states. Among its best numismatic sellers was a set named “Coin Sets of all nations”. This set besides the coinage, included stamps, and postmarks, of the respective nation. As well as coins, LP record sets, diecast vehicles, and wildlife scenes also featured, and many of the items were sold through advertisements in magazines and on Television.
