for your diamonds since 1980

These Coins are Quite a Catch

Posted on March 27th, 2014 by Joe G

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 have dealt in coins and metals since the 80s. Had dealings with many dealers. Got scammed by a few. Chicago Gold is the only one I would recommend to my family or friends. Have your valuables appraised by them before you sell.

I'll be back

Cashed in some silver coins and received a very fair exchange. Joe and Chris, were very friendly, and comfortable to deal with. Came back with some jewelry, and received a rough appraisal...again no pressure.

I would do business with them again

I found the Chicago Gold Gallery to be a very honest and reputable shop. I would highly recommend this store to anyone buying and selling their possessions.
