The game of basketball was first introduced by Dr. James Naismith in 1891 in Springfield, Massachusetts and in just three short years was being played around the world. Fittingly, the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame was founded in the city where the game was born. This 2020 curved commemorative copper-nickel half dollar released by the U.S. Mint celebrates The Hall's 60th anniversary and its dedication to preserving the legacy of the game's greatest players and contributors. Limited mintage, finest quality proof.
Please note that our modern commemoratives are not always available in the original mint packaging.
