Due to the coronavirus, I am stuck at home and I cannot access part of my stack, where I have coins I have not posted about before.
So we will continue a series that I published almost two years ago, "The Modern American Silver Commemorative Dollars".
This will be a little different series, because the photos are new (I hope better than the old ones) and the text will be different (of course the basics are the same).
The info below comes mostly from: https://moderncommemoratives.com/
"The United States Modern Commemorative Coin program began in 1982. That year, the US Mint released commemorative half dollar coins to celebrate the 250th anniversary of the birth of George Washington. Since that date, commemorative coins have been issued nearly every year to celebrate famous American people, places, events, and institutions.
Each commemorative coin program is authorized under an Act of Congress. The Act typically specifies the subject to be commemorated, the denomination of coins to be issued, and the maximum authorized mintage for each. Additionally, most commemorative coin programs include surcharges added to the cost of each coin, which will be distributed to specified beneficiary organizations or fund projects that benefit the community."
All coins weight 26.73g with 90% silver purity. They were issued in Proof and Brilliant Uncirculated finish.
They will be presented in the order they were minted, but only one of each design. I will alternate the Proofs with the Brilliant Uncirculated.
The sixty-seventh is the PR70 DCAM 2014-P "Baseball Hall of Fame".
"In 2014, the United States Mint launched one of their most popular commemorative coin programs in recent history. The program, which honored the National Baseball Hall of Fame, included three coins sharing a common design and innovative domed shape."
PCGS graded 25,709 2014-P "Baseball Hall of Fame", with 17,000 as PR70 DCAM. 267,847 2014-P "Baseball Hall of Fame" were minted in Philadelphia.
I bought this coin in 2014 for $280.00 and today's price is around $200.00. The issue price was $56.95.
The obverse design featured a depiction of an open baseball glove, which was complimentary to the concave shape of the obverse surface of the coin.
The obverse was designed by Cassie McFarland.
The reverse design features the image of a baseball, complimentary to the convex shape of the reverse surface.
The reverse was designed by Don Everhart.
