MBI began business in 1969 under the name The Danbury Mint, which was then a subsidiary of Glendinning Companies. Danbury Mint cars was the brainchild of Ted Stanley and a small team of experienced marketing managers.
Its mission was to market fine collectibles directly to the consumer, and its first product was a series of 21 medals commemorating the historic 1969 moon landing. The series was an outstanding success, and the Danbury Mint's product line later expanded to include jewelry, sports collectibles, diecast cars and other heirloom-quality collectibles.
MBI launched the Easton Press in 1975. The first product offering was The 100 Greatest Books Ever Written, a series of exquisite, leather-bound editions of literary classics. The firm became an international marketer in 1976, inaugurating our European Division with the opening of MBI UK's London office, which developed extensive Danbury Mint collections, tailored for the British market.
