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.
