The Franklin Mint Sterling Silver and Bronze Bicentennial Medal Set. The Franklin Mint Sterling Silver and Bronze Bicentennial Medal Set The Franklin Mint Bicentennial Medal - one of the most challengin works of medallic art ever undertaken by Gilroy Roberts, Chief Sculptor of The Franklin Mint - bears the portraits of thirty famous Americans whose accomplishments have become part of out national heritage. The selection of the distinguished men and women to be protrayed on the medal was no easy matter.
But Roberts' choice reflects his conviction that people are what the United States of America is all about. "It's taken different people, from different backgrounds, and from many walks of life, to build this nation of ours, " he explains.
And those I've chosen to depict were all people who helped turn the American dream into reality. It was their drive, their determination and, most of all, their dedication to the country that made them so outstanding." The choices cover virtually every aspect of American life, ranging from George Washington, "the father of our country, to Albert Einsteing, one of the greatest scientist of all time, to Babe Ruth, perhaps the most remarkable athlete in American history. And the result of Roberts' work is a medal that captures the spirit that makes this nation great.
