Product Details
The sport of basketball, one of the most popular world-wide, was invented by James Naismith (a Canadian physical educator) in 1891. This coin celebrates the 125th anniversary of this achievement with a convex-shaped coin, an RCM first.

Coin Highlights:
  • Contains 1 oz of .9999 fine Silver.
  • Comes in a maroon clamshell box with a custom box along with a certificate of authenticity.
  • Obverse: Right-facing profile of Queen Elizabeth II.
  • Reverse: Utilizes the coin’s deeply convex curvature to recreate the rounded shape of a basketball. In addition to the engineering complexity of the coin’s unusual shape, precision engraving replicates the tactile elements that are famously associated with the ball, specifically the recessed lines and dimpled surface, while the application of color captures its iconic orange appearance.
  • Guaranteed by the Royal Canadian Mint.
