Stunning Basketball Design by Donna Weaver

Obverse: The obverse design by Justin Kunz emphasizes the diversity of the game and the exertion required to play it. Three players, including a woman and a man in a wheelchair, extend their arms toward a ball. Kunz slightly elongated the arms to emphasize the effort that players put into the game. Obverse inscriptions include "LIBERTY," "IN GOD WE TRUST," and "2020."

Reverse: Donna Weaver's reverse design sparks the passion of basketball fans. The colorized image shows a basketball going through a hoop. It is joined by three rim inscriptions, which read, "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," "E PLURIBUS UNUM," and "HALF DOLLAR.

Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) provided this coin's grading information on a colorized basketball celebration label. NGC graded the piece Proof 70 because it appears flawless under 5x magnification.
