In 2014, the United States Mint launched a commemorative coin program to recognize and celebrate the 75th anniversary of the National Baseball Hall of Fame. The program was highly popular with collectors due to both its subject matter and the innovative features of the coins. The convex reverse design of the coin featured a baseball similar to those used by Major League Baseball. And the nominal face value? The obverse was designed by Cassie McFarland, who was the winner of a design competition.
Don Everhart was the engraver of the obverse, as well as the designer and engraver of the reverse. The gold coins were struck in a composition of 90% gold and 10% alloy with a diameter of 0.85 inch, height of 0.141 inch, and weight of 8.359 grams.
Proof and uncirculated versions of the coin were produced at the West Point Mint, with a maximum mintage of 50,000 pieces across both versions. An ordering limit of 50 coins per version per household was imposed. Before the end of the opening day of sales, the United States Mint placed a?S product page indicating that orders had already been received to account for the full 50,000 maximum authorized mintage. Secondary market prices for the coins rose quickly following the one-day sell out and remain at heightened levels for this popular and innovate offering. The final mintages for the gold coins were reported as 32,427 proofs and 17,677 uncirculated coins. Designer: Cassie McFarland (obverse), Don Everhart (reverse) Weight: 8.359 g Composition: 90% gold (0.242 ounces of gold) Diameter: 21.59 mm Maximum Authorized Mintage: 50,000.
