These Coins are Quite a Catch

Posted on March 27th, 2014 by Goldman Buyer

At the end of the month, the United States Mint will release a very unique set of coins commissioned by Congress in 2012. What makes the coins unique is not what is featured on them, but their shape.

The $5, $1 and half-dollar coin are the first ever curved coins ever made by the U.S. Mint. One side features a baseball, while the other side, curving inward, features an image of a baseball glove. All proceeds from the coins – the $5 gold coin costing $35, the $1 silver costing $10 and the half-dollar costing $5 – will be sent to the National Baseball Hall of Fame to commemorate its 75th anniversary.

The research and development that went into the coins’ creation was “unprecedented,” according to the Mint. Although the first of its kind in America, curved coins have been introduced in several other countries like Australia and France.

Will you be purchasing one of these innovative coins?

Customer Testimonial

Had a Great Experience

"I recently worked with Chicago Gold Gallery to design an engagement ring. From picking out the stone to designing the setting, it was a wonderful experience to say the least. Thank you so much for your help!"

Can't say enough about this place.

Recently took my family of 4 for a week to Chicago for a family vacation. We were on a limited budget but being lifelong Cub fans I thought it would be a great treat for my kids ages 7 and 10 to go to a game that we hadn't planned for...

Love this place!

Chrissy & Joe are all super friendly and easy to work with. I trust them and they will do whatever they can to help you including giving you advice on what you have or what you should look for. I won't ever go anywhere else and I've recommended it to several friends.

I would do business with them again

I had a diamond ring that I wanted to sell and they gave me top dollar for it. They were so nice and I would do business with them again.

Don't Hesitate to call...

I find that Joe at Chicago Gold Gallery consistently offers and pays more for my coins than coin dealers in Chicagoland. He's very nice and easy to deal with. Don't hesitate to call him and preferably visit him.
