The 500th anniversary of the birth of Michelangelo, the great Florentine sculptor and painter was celebrated in 1975. In honor of his artistic genius, The Franklin Mint commissioned Piero Monassi of Italy to create a collection of 60 fine art medals depicting the works of Michelangelo. A distinguished international board of advisers chose the subjects to be honored. Separate editions were offered to collectors outside the United States by The Franklin Mint's international affiliates.
The collection was available from 1970 to 1976. Each medal is 45 millimeters in diameter.
