This unique silver coin set commemorates the 60th anniversary of the basketball “Hall of Fame”. One of the most fascinating sports is captured on fine silver!
On December 21, 1891, a young physical education instructor named Dr. James Naismith introduced the game of basketball to his class at Springfield College, formally the YMCA International Training School in Springfield, Massachusetts. Three years later, the game was being played in more than a dozen nations.
Founded in 1959 in the city where basketball was born, the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame is dedicated to honoring and celebrating the game and its creator. The “Hall” is recognized globally as the premier institution entrusted with recording and disseminating the history of the game of basketball, and recognizing and honoring the achievements of its greatest players, coaches, and contributors.
This commemorative coin set was released in 2020 to recognize the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame’s 60th anniversary. It has a wonderfully curved shape, comes in a magnetic holder, and specially labeled box with leatherette. The mintage is limited to 2020 pieces for global distribution.
