The United States Mint unveiled the release date, images, prices and limits for their colorized Basketball Hall of Fame 2020 Commemorative Coins. The collectibles, a proof silver dollar and a proof clad half dollar, are the U.S. Mint’s first coins with color.
Regular Basketball coins launched June 4 with editions in gold, silver and clad bearing proof and uncirculated finishes.
The colorized versions go on sale Aug. 28 at noon ET.
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.
