2014 Baseball Silver Coins Priced at $47.95 and $51.95
Introductory and regular prices have been published for the 50-cent clad coins and $1 silver coins that celebrate the National Baseball Hall of Fame and its diamond anniversary.
These unique curved commemorative coins launch on March 27, 2014 with introductory prices available during the first month of sales. The United States Mint will also sell two $5 gold versions but those prices can change weekly with $50 movements in the value of gold and the two coins’ opening prices will not be known until March 26, 2014.
Whether in gold, silver or clad, all the Baseball coins share common designs with obverses depicting a baseball glove and reverses showcasing a baseball like those used in the game. Their shapes are curved, a first for the Mint, and enhance the design. (See the six Baseball coins.)
Returning to prices, introductory levels will be $4 less for the 50-cent clad coins and $5 less for the $5 gold and $1 silver coins. Regular prices will kick in after 5 p.m. ET on April 28, 2014.
