The US Mint 2020 Basketball Hall of Fame Commemorative Coin program combines two great American pastimes — basketball and coin collecting — loved across ages and demographics, from kids shooting hoops and filling boards with State Quarters to professional players and advanced collectors. Here’s your shot to get in on the action with a special NGC presentation, designed specifically for these coins.
Basketball Hall of Fame Special Label

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 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 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.
