The United States Mint began selling six versions of the 2014 Baseball Hall of Fame coin on March 27, 2014. The one dollar variety came in silver uncirculated and silver proof versions. Gold was also available in uncirculated and proof finishes. The fourth and fifth versions were uncirculated and proof clad coins.

Here's some eye candy for five of the versions.

These coins have been curved so that they resemble the shapes of a Baseball and glove. With the combination of Baseball, a uniquely curved coin and affordable pricing, it's not surprising that the gold and silver versions sold out quickly. It only took one day for the gold coins to disappear and 13 days for the silver versions.

A total of 50,000 units was available for the five dollar denominated gold coins. They quickly sold out and began commanding prices in the $700 range on eBay. Initial prices were $424.75 for the 2014 National Baseball Hall of Fame Proof $5 Gold Coin (B31) and $419.75 for the 2014 National Baseball Hall of Fame Uncirculated $5 Gold Coin (B32.)

400,000 units was set as the maximum mintage for the combination of silver proof and uncirculated dollar coins. Pricing was $51.95 for the 2014 National Baseball Hall of Fame Proof Silver Dollar (B33) and $47.95 for the 2014 National Baseball Hall of Fame Uncirculated Silver Dollar (B34.) On Wednesday, April 9, 2014, the Mint declared a sellout for these two versions. 400,000 units had been sold. EBay sales for the coins range in price from the $65 range to the high $80 range, and presales for graded coins have sold in the amounts of $129 for a PF69 NGC proof and over $200 for a PF70 NGC Proof.

The last two versions available are the 2014 National Baseball Hall of Fame Proof Clad Half-Dollar (B35) and the 2014 National Baseball Hall of Fame Uncirculated Clad Half-Dollar (B36.) As of this writing, these two versions of the 2014 Baseball Hall of Fame coins are still available. Priced at $19.95 for the proof and $18.95 for the uncirculated, they have maximum mintage of 700,000 combined units.

2013-w-burnished-silver-eagleOn May 28, 2013, the United States Mint began sales for the 2013-W American Silver Eagle Uncirculated Coin. Since 2006, the Mint has offered this special silver eagle which is created using burnished blanks. The burnished Silver Eagle coin has been included in the 20th anniversary set and the 25th anniversary Silver Eagle set. However, it was not sold in 2010 or 2009.

This year, the debut price of $48.95 has been initiated as the cost for a burnished Silver Eagle coin. The Mint has no restrictions on household order limits or final mintage. Last year's 2012-W Silver Eagle uncirculated coin had an early sellout. This surprised many coin collectors, and it escalated the value of the 2012 version on secondary markets since the mintage was significantly reduced from previous years.

The 2012 coin was sold for $45.95. Spot Silver is currently trading around $23 and has seen a significant drop since 2012. Pricing can periodically change for products at the Mint with precious metal spot values fluctuation.

This coin comes in a blue presentation case with a Certificate of Authenticity.
