2020 26.73 gram United States Basketball Hall of Fame .999 Silver Colorized Coin
The bouncing of the ball. The satisfying swish of a perfect shot. The blaring of the buzzer and roar of the crowds.
This design depicts an orange basketball with black channels about to pass through a white net and an orange rim. The basketball and the rim are presented in two distinct shades of the familiar orange hue associated with the sport and the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame. The historic United States Mint Basketball Hall of Fame Commemorative Colorized Coins are the first to have color applied to their design elements.
The game of basketball has excited players and fans for more than 125 years. This fast-paced game was invented on December 21, 1891, by Dr. James Naismith. From its humble roots in a gymnasium, the game has grown into a global phenomenon, embraced by players and fans around the world. Today, the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame carries on Naismith’s vision for his game of “basket ball.”
All of the coins in this three-coin program (gold $5 coin, silver dollar, and clad half dollar) share a common design and are curved.
Celebrate the game and the 60th anniversary of the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame with the purchase of a Basketball Hall of Fame Colorized Clad Half-Dollar Coin for your own collection, a special player, or dedicated fan.
