The National Baseball Hall of Fame Commemorative Coin Act (Act) (Public Law 112-152) establishes a three-coin program of
silver, and half-dollar clad coins, and requires a competition to select a common obverse (heads) design emblematic of the game of baseball. In addition, the
silver coins will be the first "curved" coins minted and issued by the United States Mint, with the reverses (tail sides) being convex to more closely resemble a baseball and the obverses being concave to provide a more dramatic design.
