As collectors eagerly await the shipment of their 2014 National Baseball Hall of Fame Commemorative Coins, I wanted to share a few related videos that are available online. This includes a video of the official launch ceremony held in Washington DC, a detailed look at the coins in hand, and short spots from Hall of Fame members promoting the coins.
A launch ceremony for the program was held on March 27, 2014 at 11:00 AM ET in the Main Hearing Room of the Senate Agricultural Committee in Washington, DC. Speakers at the ceremony included representatives from the National Baseball Hall of Fame, United States Treasurer Rosie Rios, the co-sponsors of the authorizing legislation, and Baseball Hall of Famers Joe Morgan and Brooks Robinson.
You can watch the full ceremony at the following link. Skip forward to the 18:40 mark for the start of the ceremony.
Other videos are available on YouTube. I have embedded them within the post, so you can watch them here or click through to watch.
The video above provides one collector’s experience purchasing the coins on the first day of availability from the United States Mint’s headquarters in Washington, D.C. The video goes on to share a nice look at how the coins appear in hand.
Here is a short spot featuring Baseball Hall of Famer Tom Glavine promoting the coins.
A second short video featuring Baseball Hall of Famer Frank Thomas promoting the program.
Lastly, here is a B Roll provided by the United States Mint including views of the coins in hand and some brief footage showing the dies used for production of the coins.
