Beautiful Designs Celebrating the Sport of Basketball

Obverse: Three athletes are depicted on the concave obverse, a man, a woman, and a wheelchair bound player, an image which symbolizes the diversity and unity of the game. Each player is portrayed reaching for the ball with slightly elongated arms, to demonstrate the effort and skill involved in the game. Inscriptions include "LIBERTY," "2020," "IN GOD WE TRUST" and "W."

Reverse: The reverse imagery cleverly utilizes the coin's curved shape, depicting a basketball stretching across the domed surface, with the distinctive net and rim goal of the sport below. The inscriptions "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," "E PLURIBUS UNUM" and "FIVE DOLLARS" bend around the finely textured ball.
