The Philadelphia Mint-struck silver dollar is priced at $95 and the San Francisco Mint-struck half dollar is listed at $55.

Each has a product limit of 75,000 and an initial 24-hour household order restriction of 2 coins.

The pair will share the same designs and specifications as the earlier released proof Basketball silver dollar and half dollar, including their curved shape. The difference is their reverses (tails side) are colorized.

As described by the Mint, the reverse of the silver dollar:

"Depicts a basketball with black channels about to pass through a white net and a rim delineated in a familiar orange hue associated with the sport and the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame."

As described by the Mint, the half dollar’s reverse:

"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."

When released, place orders for the Basketball issues from the Mint’s online catalog of commemorative coins.

The prices are outrageous!! The Mint is going the wrong way in many ways. But this just might top it off. The paint isn’t made of gold and even if it was it still wouldn’t be worth that much. WOW!!!

It’s only my opinion, but the obverse design is a disaster. It should have been considered, early on, that the basketball netting should have been removed from the design. On a side note, why does Coinnews not mention Royal Mint product releases. Most of their products sell out in minutes. Yes, some of the products have a mintage limit of 500 or 2,000, but still. They are continuing with their Great Britons: product line. First it was Queen, now it’s Elton John, with only 4, kilo gold coins available. Pocket change at under 70,000 pounds. Will the rock band The… Read more »

And who decided that on the dollar coin only the rim and net would be colorized? Looks silly compared to the half dollar which colorized the ball – the most important feature – as well as the rim and net.

I agree that the prices are too high, especially considering that the dollar coin is less than 1 oz silver.

Will the Mint sell these at a flea market on first day of issue??!! Such kitschy, costume jewelry, tacky paint-by-number job done by a private Mint the U.S. Mint sent them to for the Earl Scheib paint job. Lol.
