2014 P $1 Baseball Hall Of Fame Silver Uncirculated Coin With US Mint Box COA. The First Curved Coin from the United States Mint The National Baseball Hall of Fame Commemorative Coin Act (Public Law 112-152), signed into law on August 3, 2012, requires the Secretary of the Treasury to mint and issue up to: 400,000 $1 silver coins. These coins are being issued in recognition and celebration of the National Baseball Hall of Fame, which celebrates its 75th anniversary in 2014. Coin Designs The common obverse (heads) design depicts a glove that, combined with the baseball design featured on the reverse, exemplifies the most basic elements of our national pastime or a simple game of catch in the backyard or at the local sandlot. The glove design also highlights the unique concavity of the coin. The winning design, submitted by Cassie McFarland, was selected from the finalists by the Department of the Treasury on September 4, 2013, after consultation with the National Baseball Hall of Fame and U.S. Commission of Fine Arts and review by the Citizens Coinage Advisory Committee. The common inscriptions on each coin's obverse are LIBERTY, IN GOD WE TRUST, and 2014. The obverse design was sculpted by United States Mint Sculptor-Engraver Don Everhart. Common Obverse of the 2014 National Baseball Hall of Fame Commemorative Coin Proof Silver Dollar Obverse The common reverse (tails) design of each coin depicts a baseball similar to those used in Major League Baseball. The final design, also designed and sculpted by Everhart, was approved by the Department of the Treasury on May 20, 2013, after consultation with the National Baseball Hall of Fame and U.S. Commission of Fine Arts and review by the Citizens Coinage Advisory Committee. The common inscriptions on each coin's reverse are UNITED STATES OF AMERICA and E PLURIBUS UNUM. Additional inscriptions (seen below) are: ONE DOLLAR on the silver dollar Reverses of the 2014 National Baseball Hall of Fame Commemorative Coin Proof Silver Dollar Reverse Coin Specifications Curved, Not Flat The National Baseball Hall of Fame Commemorative $5 gold, $1 silver, and one-half dollar clad coins will have a shape such that the obverse is concave and the reverse is convex. While these will be the first curved coins ever minted by the United States Mint, it did produce the curved 1973 Roberto Walker Clemente Congressional Gold Medal in honor of the late Pittsburgh Pirates star right fielder. The National Baseball Commemorative Coin Act specifically refers to modeling the coins after the convex/concave 2009 International Year of Astronomy Coins minted and issued by the Monnaie de Paris (French Mint). The United States Mint's National Baseball Hall of Fame Commemorative $5 gold, the $1 silver and one-half dollar clad coins will also be closely modeled after the Royal Australian Mint's Southern Cross curved coins. Research and development on the curved National Baseball Hall of Fame Commemorative Coins is unprecedented in recent United States Mint history. It covered height of relief limitations; milling, turning and grinding operations; coinability issues; laser frosting and proof polishing; and proof, uncirculated and clad test strikes. During the planning phase for the minting and production of its first-ever curved coins, the Royal Australian and Perth Mints provided valuable technical insight to the United States Mint.
