Product Details

Celebrate baseball history with this unique curved coin that represents a special commemoration of the 180th anniversary of the first detailed record of a baseball game played in Canada.

June 4, 1838: An open pasture, a hand-hewn “club,” and a ball made of yarn and calfskin were all that was necessary to stage a match that made sports history. Fittingly shaped like a baseball, the reverse of this convex-shaped coin steps back in time 180 years ago, to the first detailed record of a baseball game played in Canada, with an image that captures the early spirit of a sport beloved by so many.

Coin Highlights:
  • Contains 1 oz of .9999 fine Silver.
  • Each coin comes packaged in a maroon clamshell display box along with a certificate of authenticity.
  • Limited mintage of 5,000 coins.
  • Obverse: The likeness of Queen Elizabeth II.
  • Reverse: Depicts one of the earliest documented baseball games with the team standing in the open field.
  • Guaranteed by the Royal Canadian Mint.

The perfect gift for any sports enthusiast. Add this 1 oz Silver Anniversary Baseball coin to your cart today!

The reverse design by artist Steve Hepburn deftly combines art and technology to re-create a historic sports moment. Paired with engraved stitch work, the coin’s curvature transforms the reverse into a baseball-shaped canvas fit for commemorating the most detailed earliest documented game played in Canada. The highly detailed, precisely engraved image provides a prime view of the action during the match, which took place on June 4, 1838, in Beachville, Ont. As seen from behind the “knocker’s stone” (home plate today), the participants from Beachville and Zorra are all in position: one team stands in the open field, ready to catch the ball; a “knocker” (batter) from the opposing team grips the “club” (bat) as he keeps his focus on the ball tossed by the “thrower” (pitcher); to the right of him, an “umpire” leans in to rule whether the ball is “fair” or “unfair.” At their feet, the denomination “25 Dollars” is engraved in a vintage-looking font; in the arched banner above, the double commemorative dates “1838” and “2018” flank a rendering of the equipment used in that era: two clubs (crossed) and a yarn ball covered by stitched calfskin.
