LANDMARKS OF AMERICA COIN GAME was a promotional game issued by the Sun Oil Company in 1969. This was an instant winner game with collectible game pieces. With each visit to a participating Sunoco gas station, customers received an aluminum game 'coin' (more accurately, 'medallion') depicting one of twenty famous United States landmarks. There was no prize for collecting all twenty coins, but some coins have INSTANT WINNER on the back in which case the player instantly won a prize.
There were four prizes available in the game; cash in the amounts of $1, $5 and $20, and a beautiful 20-piece set of bronze medals with the same designs as the aluminum game coins. The bronze prize set came with a mounting board and a pamphlet describing the twenty landmarks.
The Franklin Mint produced the game coins, prizes, and all the promotional materials. There are twenty different landmark coins, plus four 'instant winner' varieties, for a total of twenty-four different aluminum game coins in the set. This was the last oil company promotional game produced by The Franklin Mint.
