The 2014 National Baseball Hall of Fame Coin

The 2014 National Baseball Hall of Fame Coin series will be the first curved coins ever to be minted by the United States Mint.

OK, so the United States Mint is celebrating the diamond anniversary of the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum with a series of coins. The obverse of the coins shows a glove. The convex shape gives the glove the look that it really might catch a baseball. The reverse shows a baseball and has the Inscriptions UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, E PLURIBUS UNUM, and HALF DOLLAR.

As of the time of this writing, June 16, 2014, the US Mint has already sold out of all silver dollars and gold $5 coins.

The proof clad half-dollar will be released on July 16, 2014.

The uncirculated clad half-dollar will be available a couple weeks later on July 30.

Altogether 750,000 clad half-dollars will be struck. At this time I don’t know how many of these will be proofs. The US Mint provides the number with “across all options”.

Here is a coin from the US Mint for both baseball fans and coin collectors! Perhaps this coin will attract some baseball fans to coin collecting.

I am sure the sold out coins will be available on the secondary market at a premium. However there still might be time to get some of the half-dollars directly from the US Mint.
