Baseball Hall of Fame - 1st Convex Coin

2014 Cassie McFarland Signature
Baseball Hall of Fame Silver Dollars!

California native Cassie McFarland was the winning designer in a contest that would decide the design of the first concave coin produced by the United States Mint. Competing against 15 other finalists, Cassie's innovative design modeled after her own baseball mitt inevitably won the judges over.  A graduate of the California Polytechnic State University, she holds a bachelor’s degree in Fine Arts, Studio Art and Design.  She currently resides in California where she is a full time figurative painter and photographer.
The 2014 Baseball Hall of Fame coins are a unique endeavor for the United States Mint. Convex on the reverse and concave on the obverse, this is the first coin of its design.
