The United States Mint celebrated the 60th anniversary of the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in 2020 with the release of domed, commemorative coins. This series featured a clad half dollar, proof silver dollar, and two $5 gold coins. Among those was a burnished gold coin. Today, you have the chance to buy certified-perfect 2020-W $5 Basketball HOF Gold Coins online from Provident Metals.
The Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame was named in honor of James Naismith, the man considered the father of basketball in North America. The Canadian-American physician wrote the first rule book for the sport in the late 19th century while working at the University of Kansas. Naismith served as the first coach for KU basketball, a program that is considered among the most prestigious in NCAA basketball. Ironically, Naismith is the only coach in KU history with a losing record as coach.
On the obverse of 2020-W $5 Basketball HOF Gold Coins is an image of basketball players. In this design, the players are huddled together beneath a ball as they jostle for the best possible position to rebound the ball. The inscriptions on this face of the coin include LIBERTY, IN GOD WE TRUST, 2020, and the W mint mark of the West Point Mint.
The reverse side of the 2020-W $5 Basketball HOF Gold Coins features the image of a basketball. In this design element, the ball is shown as it goes through the rim in what it appears will be a clean swish through the net. This field of the coin has inscriptions of UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, E PLURIBUS UNUM, and FIVE DOLLARS.
The coins in this release come with concave and convex fields. The obverse has the concave, or sunken element, which helps mimic the appearance of the players being at the bottom of the net in the background design element. The reverse field has a domed, convex field that provides 3D relief for the image of the basketball.
2020-W $5 Basketball HOF Gold Coins in this listing are perfect specimens. Coins in Mint State 70 condition have full, original mint luster and no flaws. These coins also have a First Day of Issue designation, meaning each one was received for grading within 24 hours of release from the US Mint.
