    Another domed commemorative series is coming in 2020, and you could design it! Sixtieth anniversary of the Basketball Hall of Fame in Springfield MA design competition is open.

    Public Law 115-343 authorizes the Secretary of the Treasury to mint and issue domed $5 gold coins, domed $1 silver coins, and domed half-dollar clad coins, in recognition of the 60th anniversary of the founding of the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame.

    In accordance with the public law, the gold, clad, and silver coins will all share the same obverse (front) and reverse (back) design

    I originally read this post as 'doomed'. By domed I assume you mean not flat.

    Yeah, the press release should have spelled it (domed) with two "o's".

    Commemorative,s are always hit or miss, some just dont measure up
    And the value actually drops, they can make a good paperweight though.....LOL

    However, if they put the number "30" on a jersey for Steph Curry, it might sell better.

    Just what we need ... another gimmick coin.

    I have the baseball things, but it was only because I wanted to keep my $5 gold set up to date. Since I have given up on that series, there is no reason for me to be attracted to this

    I saw some Apollo 11 coins last night, and I have to admit that they look better than I thought they would. Still i'm not fan of this stuff.

    Quit buying commemoratives a long time ago. They are just so much ballast used to keep the US Mint upright. And, the 5 quarters and 5 $1 coins a year are nothing but more ballast. Then your have 3 mints and 3 grades on each. Not me.

    Oldhoopster It seemed like a good idea at the time.

    I rarely buy mint products but I might have to break down and order one next year. Hopefully it's better than the Olympic Commem.:vomit:

    It will be flat - just the way somebody likes it (deflategate anyone) :)

    I’m waiting for a domed Earth coin to make the flat-earthers lose their dookie.

    The domed can be a nice addition with the right subjects. Obviously the basketball side will look nice, but the other side will be a struggle to find something that fits the subject and looks nice that way. The baseball one worked out nicely as the glove as a natural curve to it anyway, but I can't think of something similar for basketball

    Australia already did one last year. There's probably others that have been done to.

    Another one that I won’t buy. There seems to be more and more of them lately.
