The United States Mint issued its Basketball Hall of Fame Series with two gold coins, a proof silver dollar coin, and a half dollar clad coin. The gold coins in the series come with proof and uncirculated finishes, with each coin boasting 90% gold content. The remaining metallic balance in the coins is 6% silver and 4% copper. A limited mintage of just 50,000 coins was set across the release, meaning that no more than 50,000 coins would be struck and sold in the two versions combined.
All of these 2020-W $5 Basketball HOF Gold Coins are available to you in perfect condition. The PCGS assigns a PR70 grade to coins that have full, original mint luster and no detractions of any kind. The included DCAM designation identifies each coin as a proof specimen with strong, frosted designs and deeply-mirrored, clear fields. The label included within the slab is a Jerry West label. West played 14 seasons in the NBA, coached for three seasons, and has been a long-time executive in the front office for the Los Angeles Lakers, Golden State Warriors, Memphis Grizzlies, and Los Angeles Clippers. First Day of Issue coins are those received by the PCGS within 24 hours of release from the US Mint.
On the obverse face of 2020-W Basketball HOF Gold Coins is a depiction of basketball players. These individuals are jostling for position amongst themselves beneath a basketball hoping to be the one to bring in the rebound. This field of the coin is concave with a sunken field.
The reverse side of 2020-W $5 HOF Gold Coins comes with an image of a basketball. This ball is just dropping into the rim and through the net within the design. The convex, domed field on this side of the coin helps enhance the illusion of a 3D ball.
