This new coin celebrates 125 years since the invention of basketball by Canadian, James Naismith. Struck in the usual one troy ounce of fine silver with an obverse depicting Queen Elizabeth II, it’s the reverse that is the highlight here. Taking the obvious step of depicting a basketball, colored in this case, the artist Glen Green hasn’t stopped there. Covering much of the coins reverse face is an uncolored depiction of two players in full flight, one trying to score and one trying to block. We think it’s a superb piece of design, very dynamic looking, and expertly laid out on the coin. The two basketballs to the left and right are minor distractions, but all said, it’s one of the finest sporting coins out there.
