This series of four plates was produced from four original sculptures created especially for this series by renowned Western artists. These were the first Franklin Mint plates to be issued in both 22K gold and Sterling silver, and the first series of sculptured plates. Each plate is serially numbered on a medallion affixed to the reverse of the plate.
Each plate was produced in a 22K gold version which weighed roughly 22 troy ounces or 684 grams.
