The History of the United States USA Medals Collection (Franklin Mint, 1976)
Issued in both a bronze and a sterling silver edition. The bronze set has very little value. This series of 200 medals provides a comprehensive history of the U. S. since the Declaration of Independence in 1776. Each medal recalls a different year by depicting the "event of the year" selected from those listed on its reverse. The events commemorated were all selected with the aid of an advisory board composed of experts of American history.
The set was issued from 1968-1976. There were 10,000 of the sterling silver sets and 24836 bronze sets produced. Each medal is 45 millimeters in diameter.
