Why add the 2020-S Basketball Hall of Fame Clad Half Dollar Proof Coin NGC PF70 FR to your collection?
Experts at third party grading firm Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) examined this 2020-S Basketball Hall of Fame Clad Half Dollar Proof Coin and determined that it is in flawless Proof 70 (PF70) condition. It also qualified for the sought after First Releases (FR) designation, which is clearly marked on the label. These cupro-nickel clad coins were struck at the immortal San Francisco Branch of the U.S. Mint and feature a domed shape that resembles the "roundness" of a basketball. This issue marks just the third time the United States Mint has ever released a coin that features this shape. The coin was struck to commemorate the 60th Anniversary of the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame.
Design Celebrates Basketball
The obverse of the coin depicts the huge physical struggle of three basketball players, all grasping and grappling for a basketball. The obverse was designed by Justin Kunz from the U.S. Mint's Artistic Improvement Program (AIP) and was sculpted by Michael Gaudioso. The reverse depicts a basketball in the split second before it scores a basket. The reverse designer was Donna Weaver of the Mint's AIP program and it was sculpt by Phebe Hemphill.
First Releases (FR) designated coins are sought out by collectors. They were graded within 30 days of release. Proof 70 coins are perfect examples. They have no trace of handling or flaws when examined under magnification. These coveted collector coins have stunning mint luster, very detailed design devices and exemplary eye appeal.
