1975 Franklin Mint Bicentennial Medal

We have a beautiful piece of sterling silver up on auction this week.

It is a piece that was made by the Franklin Mint in 1975.

It is titled: Bicentennial Medal, and it features the faces of 30 Great Americans on the front of it.

The back has the beginning sentence of the Constitution of the United States.

This is a hefty piece of solid sterling silver - weighing 2000 grains, or 4.12 troy ounces.

Gilroy Roberts created this stunning piece, and the faces appear beautifully frosted against the mirrored background.

You can check out the listing, here.

It's a beauty and good luck to the bidders!
