From April 11-May 11, 2013 there was a nationwide competition that was held to determine the the design for the National Baseball Hall of Fame Coin. These are the first curved coin from U.S. Mint. Based upon the act that signed into law on August 3, 2012, it requires the Secretary of the Treasury to mint and issue up to:
50,000 $5 gold coins – $35 per coin
400,000 $1 silver coins – $10 per coin
750,000 half-dollar clad coins – $5 per coin
These will be issued in celebration of the 75th anniversary of the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 2014. The revenue from each coin will be paid to the National Baseball Hall of Fame (an independent non-profit educational institution) to help fund its operations.
