The United States mint in San Francisco will soon produce an unusual coin in honor of the nation’s favorite pastime.
Like so many pitches in baseball, the coin will feature a curve.
The bowl-shaped coin is the product of a 2012 law — the National Baseball Hall of Fame Commemorative Coin Act — and commemorates the Hall of Fame, which celebrates its 75th anniversary in 2014.
According to the law, the coin’s shape is intended to be similar to one produced by the French Mint in 2009.
