A Special Release on his 300th Anniversary

The special release in 2006 of the Benjamin Franklin Silver Dollars came in commemoration of the tercentenary of his birth. What was unique about this release was that the fact that two different designed silver dollars was to be minted with a total mintage of no more than 250,000 each. The first of the two coins to be produced was known as the 2006 “Scientist” Silver Dollar and displayed a young version of Benjamin Franklin; the second silver dollar minted the same year featuring an older image of Benjamin Franklin gained the moniker “The Founding Father” Silver Dollar.

The Ultimate Franklin Collector’s Set

Each of these sets includes the uncirculated version of the “Scientist” Silver Dollar from the United States Mint, a set of four postage stamps released in 2006 to commemorate each of the integral roles he played in the fledgling United States of America (printer, scientist, diplomat, and postmaster general) from the United States Postal Service. Alongside the coins and stamps this set also includes an intaglio print honoring Franklin’s role in signing the Declaration of Independence from the Bureau of Engraving and Printing, as well as a reproduction of his iconic printed work the “Poor Richard’s Almanack” from the U.S. Government Printing Office.

This set is any collector or Benjamin Franklin lover’s dream. You not only get the extremely sought after 2006 Benjamin Franklin “Scientist” Silver Dollar in uncirculated condition, but you also get six other highly collectible pieces from three separate government agencies all honoring the great man and legacy that was Benjamin Franklin.
