NGC’s All-Star Lineup for the 2020 Basketball Hall of Fame Commemorative Coins
The wait is finally over for the highly anticipated US Mint Basketball Hall of Fame Commemorative Coins. NGC is offering an all-star lineup of special labels and holders to create an unrivaled presentation of the coins, the sport and the people behind both.
Basketball Celebration Special Label
The NGC Basketball Celebration Special Label creates a distinctive display for the 2020 Basketball Hall of Fame Commemorative Coins, which include the first colorized coins ever produced by the US Mint, as well as an Enhanced Finish clad half dollar that is part of a special Kids Set, a clad half dollar, a silver dollar and a gold five dollars, all curved like the surface of a basketball.
The first US coin honoring a Big Three American sport, the dome-shaped 2014 Baseball Hall of Fame Coin, was by far the most popular US commemorative coin in recent years. Expectations are high for this year’s basketball coins.
With a gray-blue background and the vibrant colors of the court and basketball, the attractive NGC Basketball Celebration Special Label is an amazing match for these coins and is available for all submitters.
Donna Weaver Signature Label
Donna Weaver, designer of the 2020 Basketball Hall of Fame Commemorative Coin reverse, has agreed to exclusively autograph NGC certification labels.
When the designs for the coin were first released in 2019, Weaver’s depiction of a basketball passing through the net was immediately praised for perfectly capturing the essence of the game.
Her signature on an NGC certification label paired with her “DW” initials on the coin is an impressive combination.
James P. Naismith Signature Label
James Naismith, a Canadian-American sports coach, invented the game of basketball in 1891. He also wrote the first basketball rulebook and established the basketball program at the University of Kansas.
His last surviving grandson and namesake, James P. Naismith, is honoring his grandfather’s legacy by autographing NGC certification labels. These heartwarming labels offer fans and collectors a tangible link to basketball history.
James Naismith is signing coin certification labels exclusively for NGC.
The NGC Basketball Core is a fun and unique display for the 2020 Basketball Hall of Fame Commemorative Coins, which is available from select retailers.
Featuring a vibrant orange basketball on the front and back with photorealistic texture, this core is a one-of-a-kind presentation that NGC designed and developed specifically for these coins. The label accompanying the core creates a seamless look.
The NGC Basketball Core combined with the special label is the ultimate presentation for the 2020 Basketball Hall of Fame Commemorative Coins.
