As an aside, the real Franklin Mint got its start in the 1960s in the wake of the US Treasury's decision to remove silver dollars from circulation. Las Vegas casinos then used silver dollars in their slot machines and had to find an immediate replacement. The Franklin Mint was apparently one of the first and largest makers of replacement slot machine tokens.
