Vote on Your Favorite Baseball Hall of Fame Coin Design

I wanted to give Mint News Weblog readers a likelihood to vote on their favored design from the semi-finalist designs of the Baseball Coin Design and style Competition. The officially selected winning design will be used as the common obverse of the 2014 commemorative $ five gold coins, silver dollars, and half dollars issued to mark the 75th anniversary of the National Baseball Hall of Fame.

There have been some modifications to the eligible semi-finalist styles since they had been unveiled in the first week of June. Soon after a discrepancy was discovered in an internal round of judging, 5 additional semi-finalists have been added. Additionally, 3 of the original semi-finalists were removed for non-compliance. Two of the removed styles (&#8220Anticipation Of A Season&#8221 and &#8220The Spirit of Baseball&#8221) were highlighted in my earlier post.

Aside from the additions and removals, there has also been some controversy within comments posted on the Challenge.Gov internet site regarding two of the style entries (&#8220Uncle Same G.W.R.B.I.&#8221 and &#8220The Large 3&#8221).

Below the posted rules, each entrant might submit only one style for the competitors. Soon after commenters recommended that one particular person had submitted two entries, a moderator indicated that the two entries were created by folks from the same household. Several commenters noted the robust similarities in style and the identical font utilised across the two styles. Even if the entries have been from two distinct individuals, any sort of collaboration would be disallowed under the rules. So far, it seems that each styles stay inside the pool of eligible semi-finalists.

Without having additional ado, right here is the Mint News Weblog Baseball Hall of Fame Coin Style Poll. From the 26 eligible semi-finalist styles, I integrated eight certain entries. If none of these are your favored from the eligible designs, there is an option to indicate your preference for one of the other people. (View all eligible semi-finalist styles here.)

Keep in thoughts that these designs are intended to be utilized for the concave obverse style and paired with a convex reverse design and style depicting a baseball. It&#8217s also worth noting that the winning design will be employed in frequent across the $ five gold coin, silver dollar, and clad half dollar, which range in size from .85 inches to 1.5 inches in diameter.

This is, of course, an unofficial poll designed to let readers a likelihood to show their preferences.

Officially, five members of the Baseball Hall of Fame have evaluated the semi-finalist styles and their preferences will be revealed on July 18. The designs will also be supplied to the Commission of Fine Arts, Citizens Coinage Advisory Committee, and the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum for their overview and comment. The Acting Director of the Mint will make a final recommendation weighing all relevant variables and recommendations. The Secretary of the Treasury has the authority to make the final choice.
