Each of the 2014-W $5 Gold Baseball HOF Coin available here at Silver.com comes in near-perfect condition. The PCGS assigns a grade of Mint State 69 to coins that exhibit full, original mint luster and have a maximum of two minor detracting flaws. Examples of those flaws are limited to minuscule contact marks or hairlines and must be located outside of the primary focal points of the coin. Each coin in this release has 90% gold with 10% copper.
The 2014 Gold Baseball HOF Coin was one of three options from the US Mint in 2014. The release included a proof gold coin, a burnished gold coin, a silver coin, and a clad half-dollar coin. The total mintage allowed across the gold release was 50,000 coins between the proof and burnished issues.
The obverse side of 2014-W Gold Baseball HOF Coins has a concave field with the depiction of a baseball glove. The sunken effect helps create the sense of a field into which a ball could fall and land in the glove.
On the reverse field of the 2014-W $5 Gold Baseball HOF Coins is a depiction of a baseball. The intricate design on this side features every stitch in the ball with great detail. With a domed relief, the baseball has greater realism in the design field.
