The Calling of the Apostles (LA CHIAMATA DEGLI APOSTOLI) Medals Collection (Franklin Mint, 1972)
57mm. Released in 1972. The bronze medals have little if any value. Set of 12 large antique finish medals in standing folder format. This series of twelve dramatic scupltures depicts each Apostle as he answered the summons of Christ. Each work of art is struck in dramatic high relief on a massive planchet of solid sterling silver or bronze --- each medal messuring 2 1/4 inches in diameter. Minted by the Franklin Mint exclusively for Members of The Franklin Mint Collectors Society, each medal is individually toned (antiqued) by hand to bring out the full beauty of scupltor Monassi's deep medallic images.
