Determined Negro League Players

Obverse: The obverse of the coin depicts a Negro Leagues player poised, awaiting a pitch with his bat over his shoulder. Beneath him is the image of a bus. The bus served not only as transportation but also as "home" because teams often suffered from segregation and racist policy at hotels and restaurants while traveling. Chris Costello of the A.I.P. designed the obverse and U.S. Mint Engraver John P. McGraw sculpted it.

Reverse: Five Negro Leagues Baseball players appear on the reverse of the coin. Justin Kunz of the A.I.P. served as designer and U.S. Mint Engraver Phebe Hemphill served as sculptor.

MS70 FR

Discerning collectors often demand the finest possible coins for their collections. Mint State 70 graded coins offer the top grade available for Brilliant Uncirculated coins. These coins are found to be without flaws when examined under magnification. Meanwhile, the First Releases (FR) designation is awarded to coins that are graded within 30 days of issue.
