What is the approximate value of the governor's edition of the 1970 Franklin Mint states of the union series 24KT gold on sterling silver 500 grains?
As of today's prices May 7th 2010 the Gold and Silver calculates the cost structure of the year 1970 issue price / raw materials i.e. Gold and Silver, you will find that the ratios are 33-1 Gold and 18-1 Silver. (to the Original Costing).
Using the today's market raw material prices with Walnut 21" x 11-3/4" x 3" box and the housing materials this set is worth.................are you ready for this?
.....................$15,000+...just to produce the "Set" as the original.
39mm of 24kt Gold Plated Sterling Silver $277.25
The Franklin Mint would need to spend $15,000 just to be able to reproduce them at today's prices. Their selling price would contain today's margin of 18% to 27%.
$2,520 to $3,780.
Along with the fact the 1303 original sets issued are quite rare.
And the fact that their dies are no longer available.....just.....keeps adding value.
The asking price of $3000 was a steal.
For the guy with the set of 500 grain Sterling with no 24k
It is worth just in Silver alone ..........$1,000+
I would need more information on the particular coin you have to give you an exact price, but these are highly collectible coins. The Franklin Mint States of the Union Series (mostly .925 Sterling, and some Bronze), The Franklin Mint States of the Union Series "Governors' Edition" (24K on .925 Sterling or .925 Sterling), and The Franklin Mint States of the Union "Treasures Edition" (24K on .925 Sterling) are all very respectable, rare coin sets…

Yes they were solid sterling silver and were patinated so the great artistic detail could be highlighted.

What is the value of a Franklin Mint Collection of Antique Car Coins 1st edition proof set in sterling silver worth?
Its value will be only for the silver it contains. Weigh them up in Troy ounces (there are 31.1 grams in a Troy ounce), multiply by .925 (the Sterling content), then multiply by the current silver spot.

Wallace began producing Silver-plate sleigh bells in 1971. In 1990, Wallace began crafting gold-plated sleigh bells as well.

I have a Franklin mint states of the union series first edition solid bronze proof set what is it worth?
In the Scribner edition that I have (which I believe to be the most common edition of the book) it is on page 110. If you do not have the same edition, it should be somewhat around the 110th page, unless you have large print. In that case, my book is around 180 pages, so 110/180. Apply the ratio to your book. This is an approximate estimate. Found it in my book on the bottom…

If you have a complete set they can sell anywhere from $150 $425…

It's likely only the Franklin Mint and NASA know how many were struck. From the article in the related links: An unknown number of medallions, minted by The Franklin Mint, were given to the crew to fly to the Moon and back. As no landing occurred, Lovell returned all the coins to the Mint. The sterling silver medallions were later melted down and added to non-flown metal to strike the Mint's limited edition set "Project…
