*Of all the MONOPOLY games that have been issued, without exception, the most luxurious edition ever produced is the Franklin Mint Collector’s edition. Franklin Mint began producing MONOPOLY games in the 80’s with the release of the Player’s edition. The Player’s edition sold so well that Franklin Mint designed the Collector’s edition which was a considerable improvement in quality and craftsmanship over the Player’s edition.MONOPOLY isn't simply one of the best selling board games in the world, itISthe best selling board game in the world. Most of the various editions have been available at one time or another right here on . The Franklin Mint Collector's Edition has long been considered the most luxurious edition of MONOPOLY.There are multiple types of Collector's Edition Money; however, there are 3 main types. Type I bills are noticeably lighter in color and do not have the "printed in the U.S.A." designation. The bills are generally associated with the early production of the Franklin Mint Collector's Edition of MONOPOLY. Type II bills are of course, slightly darker in color and have the "printed in U.S.A." designation. On the correctly identified Type II bills you will also find a "TM" designation for Trademark behind the word MONOPOLY. Type III bills are the same in coloration as Type II bills. These bills also have the"printed in the U.S.A." designation but do not have the "TM" designation. These bills are printed with the "®", indicating a registered trademark.Types I & II have been out of use for quite a while. The only supply will come from the secondary market. Type III money is still in production.The Chance and Community Chest cards for the Collector's edition also have two types. Type I cards do not have the "Printed in the U.S.A" while Type II cards do have the designation in the lower right corner.The original selling price was $495. Later, the price was increased to $595 and remained at that price until recently. The current price is $649.Under license from Parker Brothers, The Franklin Mint designed the Collector’s edition to be every bit as dazzling as the goings-on in Atlantic City – the seaside resort that inspired the creation of the MONOPOLY game in the first place. The game features dazzling 24 karat gold plated hotels and silver plated houses designed to impress the most discriminating MONOPOLY player and collector. The money was redesigned for this issue to include the Franklin Mint name and unlike most MONOPOLY money, was printed on both front and back using a high quality paper. The Tokens, originally called “charms”, represent the original charms for MONOPOLY and are also plated in 24 karat gold. The hardwood board combines the legendary MONOPOLY graphics with a lush green fabric surface to create an incomparable table-top set that not only looks good, but adds to the enjoyment of game play."
