The Citizens Coinage Advisory Committee (CCAC) will hold a public meeting Wednesday, July 17, to review and discuss candidate designs for the 2020 Basketball Hall of Fame Commemorative Coins.
The CCAC is tasked with advising the Secretary of the Treasury on themes and designs pertaining to all United States coins and medals.
The United States Mint in 2020 will produce and sell dome-shaped coins in commemoration of the 60th anniversary of the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame (www.hoophall.com). The commemorative reverses will depict a basketball while their obverses must be “emblematic of the game of basketball.” Available options will include up to 50,000 $5 gold coins, as many as 400,000 silver dollars, and a maximum of 750,000 clad half-dollars. The coins will be minted in collector finishes of proof and uncirculated.
