Franklin Mint

The Franklin Mint is a private mint founded by Joseph Segel in 1964 in Wawa, Pennsylvania. It is currently owned by Retail Ecommerce Ventures (REV). The Franklin Mint sells coins, medals, jewelry, die-cast vehicles, dolls, sculpture and other collectibles. Its product line began with manufacturing and marketing privately minted gold and silver commemorative rounds and medallions. In the 1970s and 1980s, Franklin Mint expanded operations to legal-tender coins, producing a combination of bullion and non-bullion proof and uncirculated coin sets of both small and large denominations for a number of countries, particularly Panama and various island states. Franklin Mint entered the diecast vehicle market in 1983, after Warner Communications had purchased the company.
