Mint Announces Prices for Colorized Basketball Hall of Fame Commemoratives

The United States Mint has released the pricing scheduled for the upcoming colorized Basketball Hall of Fame commemoratives. The two colorized versions of Half Dollar and Silver Dollar will be the first offered by the United States Mint. Other mints around the world have offered color versions of coins for several years. Both coins will go on sale starting at Noon Eastern on August 28, 2020.

The Basketball Hall of Fame colorized Half Dollar will be priced at $55.00. A total of 75,000 of these will be minted with a household limit of two coins.

This design 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. The historic United States Mint Basketball Hall of Fame Commemorative Colorized Coins are the first to have color applied to their design elements.

The second coin to be offered will be the 2020 Basketball Hall of Fame Silver Dollar. This too will have color added to the rim and net much like that of the Half Dollar. It will be priced at $95.00 with a household limit of two coins. Like the Half Dollar, only 75,000 of these will be minted by the United States Mint.

Both of the product pages are live and available now via the links above. You can use the Remind Me feature on each to get an email or text when sales start on August 28th so you can go pick up these two great looking coins for your collection.
