Franklin Mint Silver Medals ~ Ingots ~ Coins ~ Buy ~ Sell


Danbury Mint, Lincoln Mint, Hamilton Mint, and Other Sets

Although the Franklin Mint was the premier producer of art medals and ingots, other private mints also produced similar sets. One advantage of other mints is that they more often produced sets in "standard units", such as 1 troy ounce ingots of .999 silver (as opposed to Franklin Mint's 500 grains of .925 silver).

Click on a link below or to the left to view information about Danbury Mint, Lincoln Mint, Hamilton Mint, and Miscellaneous medal and ingot sets. This is not a complete list of these sets. I'm adding additional pages as time permits, so if you are looking for information on a particular set that is not yet here, please bookmark this site and check back.

Each of the individual pages also has my subjective ratings of the rarity of the set, from one to five stars, based on my 30 years of collecting experience with these sets and over 15 years regularly browsing Ebay auctions. Availability refers to generally how often I see the set offered for sale in any venue - coin shows, coin shops, Ebay auctions, etc.
