Danbury Mint

A chief producer of 20th-century collectibles, Danbury Mint has offered a wide variety of coveted trinkets and souvenirs from dolls to plates over its storied history. Their wide array of production has contributed to their status as an essential chronicler of Americana.

First founded in the late '60s by duo Ralph Glendinning and Ted Stanley in Westport, Connecticut, the Danbury Mint rose to rapid acclaim for their pieces that celebrated bits of American history and celebrity.

The Danbury Mint's die cast collectible figurines of a variety of figures from presidents to pets became an instant success as they both warmed the heart and commemorated history. It is for these dual qualities that Danbury Mint pieces are still coveted today, and their relative affordability makes them an antique bargain for any budget.
