The NBA Basketball Hall of Fame will be celebrating its 60th Anniversary with a US Mint Commemorative Coin. The coins will be curved and available in gold, silver, and non-precious metals. The special set, just for kids, will be delayed for delivery until September, 2020 but the others will be available June 4. Below are images from the US Mint website.
What makes these commemorative coins stand out is that all the coins in this three-coin program (gold $5 coin, silver dollar, and clad half dollar) are curved. The US Mint issued a set of curve coins in 2014 to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the Baseball Hall of Fame. In 2020 it’s the NBA Basketball Hall of Fame’s turn to celebrate with a commemorative curved coin set.
The coins go on sale June 4, 2020 and the prices are as follows. The 2020 Proof $5 Gold Coin will be $644.50 with a mintage limit of 50,000 (across all products) and a household order limit of 1. The 2020 Proof Silver Dollar is $69.00 with a mintage limit of 400,000 (across all products) and a household order limit of 25. The 2020 Proof Clad Half Dollar is $39.00 with a mintage limit: 750,000 (across all products) with no household order limit.
To me the most interesting offering is the Basketball Hall of Fame 2020 Enhanced Uncirculated Clad Half Dollar Kids Set. It’s priced at $45.00 with a mintage limit of 75,000 sets, a product limit of 75,000 sets and a household order limit of 5. The interesting part to me is in the description. It reads ‘This special limited-edition set for kids features a curved Basketball Hall of Fame Enhanced Uncirculated Half Dollar that is only available when you purchase this set!’ In the specifications details you will see that the coin’s finish will be an Enhanced Uncirculated Finish. While all the coins are available Jun 4, 2020 to purchase the Basketball Hall of Fame Kids Sets are delayed until September, 2020.
