As we predicted in a previous piece that we wrote for, the release of the 2014 National Baseball Hall of Fame commemorative coins has been a smashing success.  In fact, so much so, that the $5 proof and uncirculated gold coins have already sold out, according to Mint News Blog.  The coins commemorate the 75th anniversary of the Baseball Hall of Fame, and are available in the aforementioned $5 gold pieces, $1 silver dollars and half dollar copper/nickel coins.

Historically speaking, commemorative coins have been met with varying levels of enthusiasm.  The 1992 Olympics commemorative silver dollar, which features an image of Nolan Ryan, sells for slightly more than the melt value of the coin.  The 1995 Olympics baseball half dollar has held up reasonably well, with values in the $20 range; while the 1997 Jackie Robinson commemorative coins were a big hit among coin collectors and baseball fans alike; still selling at a reasonable premiums above the melt value of the coins.

So what’s on tap for the future?  The U.S. Mint will be releasing a U.S. Marshalls commemorative coin in 2015.  Various design candidates are currently being considered for the coin, which can be viewed here.
