2022 Negro Leagues Baseball Commemorative Coins
Images showing some of the 2022 Negro Leagues Baseball Commemorative Coins

There are nine options encompassing individual or combinations of $5 gold coins, silver dollars, a silver medal, and clad half-dollars. All of them celebrate the 100th anniversary of the establishment of the Negro National League, the first successful, organized professional African-American baseball league in the United States.

"Just as this game connects families and communities, every day, across the Nation, the Mint connects Americans through coins," said United States Mint Deputy Director Ventris C. Gibson about the Negro Leagues Baseball Commemorative Coin Program. "It is now our great privilege to connect America to the extraordinary legacy of Negro Leagues Baseball."

Coin finishes include the collector qualities of proof and uncirculated. Proof coins are the finest quality of coin produced by the U.S. Mint. They feature frosted design elements that contrast against mirror-like backgrounds. Uncirculated coins have a matte-like finish and are also uniquely produced as compared to regular circulating coins found in change.

Negro League Commemorative Coin Designs and Specifications

Shown on the obverse (heads side) of the Negro League $5 Gold Coin is a portrait of Negro National League founder Rube Foster along with his signature. Inscriptions read "NEGRO LEAGUES BASEBALL," "IN GOD WE TRUST," "2022," and "LIBERTY. The obverse image was designed by Laurie Musser and sculpted by Phebe Hemphill.

The reverse (tails side) of the $5 coin depicts the gesture of tipping one’s cap, an important sign of respect for players. Inscriptions include "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," "THEIR LEGACY PLAYS ON," "$5," and "E PLURIBUS UNUM." This design is the work of Donna Weaver. It was sculpted by Eric David Custer.

As for the silver dollar, its obverse shows a pitcher in mid-throw with the baseball in the foreground and baseball stitching as a border. Inscriptions are "IN GOD WE TRUST," "2022," and "LIBERTY." Matt Swaim designed the obverse and Eric David Custer sculpted it.

Don Everhart designed the reverse image and Craig A. Campbell sculpted it.

Above the bus, we see a batter meant to exemplify the determination to play the game he loves, regardless of challenging circumstances.

Ordering

2022 Negro Leagues Baseball Commemorative Coin are available for order from the U.S. Mint’s online store of commemoratives.

Surcharges Support Negro Leagues Baseball Museum

Authorized by the Negro Leagues Baseball Centennial Commemorative Coin Act (Pub. L. 116-209), product prices include surcharges in the amount of $35 for each $5 gold coin; $10 for each silver dollar; and $5 for each half dollar. Provided the products make more than their production and issue costs, the surcharges will be paid to the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum for educational and outreach programs and exhibits.

"The Negro Leagues Baseball Museum is thrilled to partner with the United States Mint on the release of these historic coins that beautifully captures the ‘winning spirit’ of the Negro Leagues," said Bob Kendrick, Negro Leagues Baseball Museum President. "We hope that collectors and baseball fans alike will purchase these coins and support the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum efforts to ensure that the legacy and important life lessons of the Negro Leagues plays on."

Later this year, at a date yet to be determined, the U.S. Mint will issue a second commemorative series known as the the 2022 National Purple Heart Hall of Honor Commemorative Coin Program.

very smooth tranaction.

Rob S

Same here. Not an instant headache – sellout. I got the privy and 3 coin proof set. Didnt care for multiples tho.
More interested in the purple heart coins, really.
The Eagles are going to be a “fun” story again this year, I expect. Hopefully not, tho.

Rob S

I think its more the latter, seeing as they’re still available ~45 mins later. My BP is not complaining. 😉

Rich

Rob, the (Silver) Eagles should also be easy (piece of cake) if you have already ordered and secured all three (Proof W & S and Uncirculated W) through the Eagle Enrollment Program.

Rob S

Thx. I’ve never participated in that, not sure why. It might be I’m never sure how many I want to order. Typically only 2 per year (of each Proof S & W). With the design change I upped the quantity tho. Perhaps, I can enroll for 2 each and still order the difference manually if I want more? I’ll have to check into it. … OK, just signed up for 2 Proof W ASEs. S was not available, and neither were any AGEs. I think some of my lack of faith is whether the mint actually delivers when quantities are… Read more »

Rob, just a few points of clarification. The MInt’s Eagle Enrollment Program is only for ASEs and not AGEs. This year issues (2022) have Enrollment Household Order Limits (HOL) of 25 coins each. Enrollments for the ASE Proof S mint and ASE Uncirculated W mint became Not Available about 2 months ago, so only the ASE Proof W mint is currently available to order.

Mmk

I see the 2022-w ASE is listed as TBD on the mint schedule of products, any idea why the delay ,? These coins were always sold in the beginning of the year along with the congratulations set .

Rich

Mnk, the Mint has not provided a reason for the delay in the release of the 2022-W American Eagle One Ounce Silver Proof Coin West Point (W) or the Congratulations Set 2022 West Point (W), which were originally scheduled for release on Feb 3, 2022, but are now listed as TBD on the revised 2022 Product Schedule. The same applies to the all the National Purple Heart Hall of Honor 2022 commerative coins (now TBD) which were originally scheduled for release on Jan 6, 2022 along with the Negro Leagues Baseball commemorative coins. Perhaps someone else may know the reason… Read more »

Mmk

Thanks for the information. Interestingly the mint has published prices for the Purple Heart coin without a date of release , however no prices on the ASE -w

Rich

Yes, it is interesting that the Mint has published prices for the TBD Purple Heart Silver dollars and Clad half-dollars, but have not published prices for any other TBD or scheduled 2022 silver coins such as the ASE-W and -S proofs and ASE-W uncirculated, all the silver medals (like the American Liberty 1 Ounce Silver Proof Medal), etc. Maybe they published the prices for the Purple Heart silver/clad coins because they had to match the prices of the already published prices for the recently released Negro Leagues silver/clad coins since they are not tied to the Mint pricing grid for… Read more »

Rob S

While I give little credence to Compulsive Shoppers Network Mike Mezak and his rarer-than-rare spiels, due to his multi-million $ coin orders he sometimes has some info to dispense.
If you believe him, its due to a shortage of silver (and gold) available – they’re in a deficit.

Rich

Rob, that sounds plausible even though the source of the information is Mike “The Circus Barker” Mezak. Last year around February the Mint floated a similar scenario of a shortage of available silver and COVID-related impacts.

REB

Same purchase and same result as Rob S.

Ordered the privy 100. Debating on others but probably will pass

Rooster

Kaiser: The tranny was smooth also, no issues. Acknowledged email at 12:01.

Rich

Wise pick, Rooster. I also just ordered the Silver Dollar Proof 100 Privy. For $11 more, besides the privy, it comes with the old, fancier clam-shell case packaging compared to the cheap, flimsy plastic box like the other regular silver/gold proof/uncirculated commems (Whoopi). But more importantly, with a limited maximum mintage of 20,000, it is guaranteed to be the lowest mintage modern silver proof commemorative coin to date. At present, the lowest mintage silver proof commemorative is the 2017 Boys Town Centennial at 31,610, and the second lowest mintage is the 2021 National Law Enforcement Memorial and Museum currently at… Read more »

Rooster

Rich: Thanks for sharing info on the mintage of those commemoratives. The only reason I had ordered. Didn’t know about the clam shell option. Miss that for sure.

Bubba

Why does chart have the proof $5 cheaper than uncirculated $5?

CoinNews.net

Prices for the proof and uncirculated $5 gold coins were reversed. Sorry. We updated the article.

Rooster

You can look at order history now which normally is disabled during early first day ordering.

Domenic Vaiasicca

10AM pst ordered the proof with privy….went smooth …still about 13,000 available….

Rich

Thanks, Domenic. The rate of sales of the proof 100 privy is slowing. At 1:25pm ET there were 12,965 available.

DaveM

How do you know how many are left?

Uncle Sams Nephew

Agreed, there’s gotta be a source of information that would be helpful to know real-time coin sales rates. More than that, what’s the source of information when the mint has these flash sales? I signed up for “21” Morgan reminders but no-get-um. Hope someone out there can assist. Thanks

Rich

Dave and Uncle Sam, here are the instructions to follow on the Mint’s online catalog ordering product page for a particular item, as originally provided by Daniel:

Right click the product page and click “view source code” or whatever your browser says along those lines. Then CTRL +F and type in “data-available” (without quotes) and the number to the right of it is the quantity remaining.

Uncle Sams Nephew

That works, Great tip, Thanks!

Rich

Sir Kaiser, thank you very much for the kindest of words. Glad I can be of help to others.

Rich

Your right, Sir Kaiser, regarding the slowing sales of the Proof Silver 100 privy. Now, as of 6pm ET there are 11,570 available (out of the 20.000 product limit).

Rich

Sir Kaiser, the primary reason this coin (Silver Proof 100 Privy) has not had higher sales at this point is due to the initial 24-hour order limit of 1. This has allowed the collectors to take advantage of and acquire this coin before all the dealers and flippers flood in and scoop them up. True collectors saved by the initial household order limit of 1. Thank you, Sir Kaiser, for advocating for this very thing for so long…

Domenic Vaiasicca

Kaiser….It is very surprising. Many i guess dont see or haven’t figured out this as a “low mintage coin” i guess….which it will be and, in a much nicer presentation holder. I honestly was going to skip these releases but decided at last minute to get just 1 of them.

Phil

Domenic Vaiasicca,

I’m guessing that’s not the Oliphant in the room Kaiser was hinting at…

I was surprised & delighted I got the privy about 15 mins in with no prob. Got the medal set too to add to my Jackie collectibles.

Mmk

The 3 coin proof set only has available 830 ad of 2:50ET
QUITE INTERESTING??

Rich

Correction, Sir Kaiser, the Proof Three Coin Set has a limited product limit of 5,000.

Rob S

I got the 3 coin set just for the ease of stuffing 1 item in my bag (and add the privy coin with that as well) – *IF* I had to do a hurried checkout to beat the bots. That didnt happen THIS time, but past experience had me preparing for it.
Oh yeah, I think it saved a few $ too.

I was considering the UNC 1/2 dollar – just for the D mint mark, but … nah, its not Proof and its clad.

Something very interesting and peculiar about the weight given for the 2022 $5 Gold Proof/Uncirculated Negro Leagues Commemorative coins. Prior to 2022, the Mint specified the weight as 8.359 grams with a composition of 90% Gold (i.e., purity = 0.90 fine gold), same as the CoinNews.net admin Editor has listed above. However, for the first time this year the Mint has specified the weight as 0.243 troy ounce (with composition = 90% gold). This is important because prior to this year’s 2022 issue, the 2021 and earlier gold commems had an actual gold weight (AGW) = 0.24187 troy ounce (with… Read more »

Christopher Williams

I picked up the “Silver Proof” with the privy at 6PM EST. Still over 11,000 remaining. Won’t sell out today. Thinking about the Medal Set.

Christopher Williams

I agree, Kaiser. I am still debating.

Christopher Williams

Only 659 of the “Three Coin Set” remaining. The “Gold Coin” only a little over 3,900 left.

Mmk

The 3 coin set is selling about 40 per hour , less than 600 left !
The uncirculated gold has less than 1400 left !!
Both should sell out within a day .very interesting that the privy coin
Has over 11,000

Ilio

Not a sellout? Got in 1/2 hour after start time. Wonder how much race had to do with it. IIRC, the baseball coin was did better.

Head Scratcher

Maybe I’m thinking of this wrong, but the 3-coin set seems to be priced wrong. Why wouldn’t a collector purchase the individual proof coins and save a few bucks?

Rich

You are right about the pricing, Head Scratcher. The 3-coin set at $787.25 costs $4.25 more than just buying the three coins individually at a total price 0f $783.00. The rationale for buying the 3-coin set is probably due to the limited (mintage) product limit of 5,000 sets. There are no product limits for the other three proof coins sold separately.

Rob S

Wow, my math skillz went south on me on that. And thats usually a strong point for me. I thought it priced out less, I see I was in err-roar, err- rrr, errr x-P …. Brane know werk for a moment. lol.

Just ordered one 22CS (privy mark). No problems ordering on January 7, at Noon time. All varieties of the Negro League commemoratives still available. The Royal Mint had their sale of the Queen’s 70th platinum reign silver coins on January 6th and it sold out immediately. I didn’t buy one (didn’t want it) but you couldn’t even logo onto Royal Mint website, there was a que to enter (see pic). The several varieties of these coins sold out immediately. Wonder if US Mint going to do a campaign to help bolster interest and sales of the Negro League coins? Basketball… Read more »

Chris, I understand your point about mint product sales and marketing. I personally find tracking the lowest mintage US Mint coins to be interesting and attractive. So, when a limited mintage coin sells out quickly, or a regular mintage coin has weak sales and relatively few are sold resulting in a low final mintage, it gets my attention. As an example, the 2021 $5 Gold Uncirculated National Law Enforcement Museum and Memorial Commemorative coin, the other three National Law Enforcement gold and silver coins, all four 2017 Boys Town Centennial gold and silver coins, and the 2019 $5 Gold Uncirculated… Read more »

Here’s to you, Father Flanagan! …RIP!

Chris Terp

Right-o! Wonderful man.

Chris Terp

Four of the five uncirculated which helps explain lower sales/interest. Wonder if proofs of those had larger sales? Of course the WWII V75 coin mintage only 1945 minted. Where are those missing six coins? – guess given away/kept by senior Mint staff?

All the best for your New Year Rich 🙂

Rich

Yes, Chris, the corresponding proofs had higher sales.
Here are the top five lowest mintage $5 Gold Proof Modern Commemorative coins (1986-2021):

2021 $5 Gold Proof National Law Enforcement: mintage = 5,871
2017 $5 Gold Proof Boys Town: mintage = 7,347
2020 $5 Gold Proof Basketball Hall of Fame: mintage = 8,070
2018 $5 Gold Proof Breast Cancer Awareness: mintage = 10,386
2019 $5 Gold Proof American Legion: mintage = 10,918

Thanks for the follow-up Rich with details on the proofs.

Chris Terp,

1 wrinkle in your plan for releasing the baseball coins near opening day is that opening day is in flux with the lockout. Great marketers could forecast that. Very difficult tho. ‘Fluid’

Chris Terp

Ah yes, forgot about that potentiality.

All the best for your New Year Phil 🙂

Phil

Kaiser,

Don’t kid yourself. If there were a cba in place, rosters would expand & games would be played. Except maybe in Canada, lol

To keep this coin related…I actually like the design on this silver commemorative more than the the curved baseball one from years back. I’ll wait until it shows & I see in person for final judgment.

Rooster

Household limits removed.

Rich

And with the Household Order Limit: None (removed) after 24 hours from launch the dealers have moved in. And voila, the Silver Proof 100 privy is now Not Available (Zero coins available) as of 2pm ET (1/7/22). So the Proof 100 privy coin with a product limit of only 20,000 only lasted about 24 hours. All other item options are still available for sale

Rob S

So, at least this time, the low HOL helped us lil’ guys out. noyce

Rich

Sir Kaiser, I totally concur with your position on the HOL of 1 for limited product releases. It certainly works well with releases like this (Proof 100 privy). However as you well know, with the most coveted sought after limited releases, when the “system” is rigged, e.g., the 2019-S $1 ASE Enhanced Reverse Proof, the 2020-W $50 AGE Proof End of WWII with V75 Privy, etc., a HOL of 1 does not help much for us peons. Of course with the mintage/product limit of 1945 for the 2020-W $50 AGE Proof End of WWII with V75 Privy, it was ridiculously… Read more »

Many have been deceived by this guy. My brother in law was hooked on him for a couple years. He would not listen to me but learned the hard way. After he woke up he had nothing good to say about him. We now can laugh about it.

Phil

This might be hard to believe, but when y’all rip on this Mezack dude, I just pretend I know what’s going on. I have 0 idea who he is. It seems to me, based on what I read here, that he’s a fraud on home shopping network or something? I suppose my real question is who watches this outlet?

Rob S

Yeah, he’s on the “CSN” (Compulsive Shoppers Network). I NEVER watched that until I ran across their coin segment with MM, probably around 2019 when they had the limited mintage enh rev proof eagles. He does what they ALL do on that network … over HYPE everything, and run those “counters”, as in “hurry up we’re running out”. I’ve seen them play that game with air purifiers (only 100 of the rose gold left – lolz), laptops, etc. They really play on people’s FOMO!

Jackie Robinson medal can not be purchased on its own, need to purchase the Silver Dollar / Silver Medal set 🙁

8840 of the set still left. Maybe give it some thought to purchase later?

Chris Terp

Medals if done right rock Kaiser. Because US Mint can only do two commemoratives coins per annum, Mint can do more medals. Sadly, since Mint’s gross increase in pricings for medals believe Mint shot themselves in foot. Medals were wonderful gifts I used to give people but Mint priced me out of that.

French do very good job with their medals but very expensive – but if you wait they go on sale, then you only have to deal with the ridiculous shipping fees to here in U.S.A.

All the best for your New Year!

Allan

Wanted to let you know the privy coin is again available around 6 am Saturday. Been watching you all for about 6 months, like what I have been reading. Got 15 of the 21 W Eagles, enjoyed watching you all figure out the HOL was product limited. Single order product HOL were limited to 3 and 15 was the HOL limit for the Enrollment product. A product has a number and that is how it is controlled. Kaiser, you are the man, I enjoy reading your comments.

Chris Terp

Welcome the the frey Allan.

All the best for your New Year!

Allan

Thanks Chris, first time I have done anything like this. Happy New Year to you too.

Chris Terp

Thank you Kaiser

Allan

Thank you, Happy New Year to everyone in the CN thread.

Allan

My goal for the year is to get the proof Morgan & Peace dollars. If they are limited editions it will be a crash and burn repeat of last years Morgan’s.

Chris Terp

Those are nice goals Allan and I will be there with you during the possible frenzy to purchase those two online.

U.S. Navy medal (if any good, no pics of medal yet), Purple Heart coins and the U.S. Air Force silver dollar (gifts for USAF friends of mine) also on list. If the U.S. Navy medal blah will not purchase and wait to pick up the U.S.N. silver dollar following year instead.

Chris Terp

The silver medal comes first then following year the silver dollar Kaiser.

Wasn’t impressed with Air Force medal as the Air Force Memorial on the medal not a good design for it. Coast Guard did wonderful job with Cutter cutting through the waves.

Rob S

I almost picked up a USAF medal, but after getting the 2019 silver medal (Liberty – forget the actual designation – 2.5 oz I think), I’m off of medals.
I did like the F22s on the obverse. Pretty sharp IMO. But the reverse didnt do it for me. So that + its a medal … + ALL the other stuff I wanted to purchase last year, I let it slide.

Rich

Sir Kaiser, et. al., Hopefully it will be much easier for collectors to purchase the 2022 Morgan and Peace Proof Silver Dollars this year compared to last year’s chaotic food fight, by online ordering through the US Mint Enrollment Program. Back in November, 2021, US Mint officials made statements about such subscription enrollment ordering (source Coin World, 2021): The U.S. Mint’s 2022 numismatic products will include Morgan and Peace dollars, products likely to be offered through enrollment or subscription rather than in limited-edition pre-sales as were the six 2021 silver dollars honoring centennials for the two designs, according to Matthew… Read more »

Allan

Rich, I hope you are right. With the Eagles and Purple Heart coins being delayed to a TBD date I see production issues again this year. I only see an Enrollment for the Morgan & Peace dollars if they plan to continue them beyond 2022. I guess it’s down to what the mint say’s and my best guess, Only time will tell.

Allan

Mike M. on air just mentioned talks about a Reverse Proof Morgan this year. That would be a nice surprise, he tends to exaggerate though.

Rob S

I dont know about exaggerate or just misspoke (got it backwards)? May have substituted Rev Proof / Proof. He may have been projecting for 2023.

Allan

Hi Kaiser

I watch MM every week and he is a good talker. He tends to exaggerate ALL the time, which is legal. One time he was talking about the Morgan’s and said he did not know if the mint would get them all shipped. Within a short period of time he corrected himself and said the mint would get them all shipped. He realized he went to far and could be sanctioned by the mint. Kaiser, don’t forget his “ah, ah” he does all the time too.

The privy mark was the key for folks interests in the Negro League Silver Dollar. I believe without that mark coin would not of sold out.

Mmk

Sales of the privy coin as of Sunday Jan 9, were 19,992.

Rich

Thanks Mmk, so it’s a sell out! Looks like we a hit a home run with the Proof 100 Privy!!

Rich

As expected, at this time the Proof 100 Privy is fetching a higher premium than the regular Proof Negro Leagues silver dollar, probably due to higher demand and it’s relative scarcity based on it’s sell out and product limit of 20,000. For comparative purposes, I found only one online dealer offering both proofs for pre-sale. Here are the price comparisons: 100 Privy Proof US Mint OGP/COA (ungraded) = $125 100 Privy Proof NGC ER PF-69 = $139 100 Privy Proof NGC ER PR-70 = $199 Regular Proof US Mint OGP/COA (ungraded) = $85 Regular Proof NGC ER PF-69 = $92… Read more »

As per the above prices, to be fair, I forgot to mention the initial US Mint pricing for the coins, i.e., Proof 100 Privy = $85 and the Regular Proof = $74.

The Mint just opened up the Negro League Coins today (6/25). While I hadn’t planned on getting any of them, the Privy version became available. I got one when there were 1987 left. As of Pacific Time Noon there are now 1955. Fyi.

Mike: Thanks! I have 3 of the privy coins and would have ordered more but don’t like that the coin doesn’t say anything about who they are commemorating.
