38 Sterling Shakespeare Medals ~ Franklin Mint ~ Full Set:
$450


This is a full set of 38 sterling silver Shakespeare Medals issued by the Franklin Mint. This is the more rare set of medals that are 32 mm wide and weigh about 15.2 grams each. Far fewer of this smaller size were made than the larger 45 mm set.

Each medal is sculptured in bas-relief, and captures the essence of one of Shakespeare's 38 plays. They were issued by the Royal Shakespeare Theater of Stratford-Upon-Avon, England to commemorate the centenary of the founding in 1869 of the Royal Shakespeare Theatre at its present location.

The original issue price in 1979 was $741.

The medals are in as issued condition with no tarnish. My photos don't do them justice. The custom hardbound album is in very good condition with only minor wear. It has a light stale odor from closet storage. The paper work in the album has light age toning around the edges and the separate letter has age toning and folds at the bottom.
