Surprised the BB coin doesn’t also have a transexual player on it as it’s the in thing….


This coin design looks to be very congested, and that of a design by committee.
It would have been better to have a simple, cleaner design. If various elements and arenas for basketball wished to have been represented, then they could have been miniaturized and placed along the perimeter of a main design.
Perhaps the individual who created the game, or the location of the first game/match, could have been the main focus, thereby demonstrating an aesthetically clean and simple design.

Is this another good example of a wasted opportunity by the US Mint?
