Dome-shaped United States Mint commemorative coins recognizing the 60th Anniversary of the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame (www.hoophall.com) are moving along. Their first-day sales combined to 82,549 coins, according to U.S. Mint spokesman Michael White.
Released Thursday, product options include proof and uncirculated editions of $5 gold coins, silver dollars, and clad half-dollars. There is also an enhanced uncirculated half-dollar that comes exclusively with a special Kids Set.
About 11% of the allotted gold and silver coins are gone and just over 15% of the Kids Sets have sold. Altogether so far, the collection of Basketball Commemorative Coins has realized more than $7.8 million.
All but the proof and uncirculated half-dollars had initial household order limits. Those limits were lifted today at noon EDT, meaning collectors and dealers can now buy as many as they want until and unless their mintage limits are reached.
Here’s a breakdown of the Basketball products and their first-day sales:
