Delightful Miniature Basketball Sculpture
The sphere is designed to replicate a basketball, featuring the traditional seam pattern and stippled texture of a regulation size ball. The Samoan Coat of Arms is illustrated in brilliant color on the reverse, created through innovative Water Transfer Print technology. The obverse is adorned with the inscriptions "FIVE DOLLARS" and "1 OZ SILVER 999," with the year of issue "2020" located on the side where the seams intersect.
