A Hand Full of Gold

2014 National Baseball Hall of Fame Commemorative Coin Winner

Built upon the value of community, Baseball is the backbone of American culture. Raised loving the native pastime, a glove assisted me not only as a tool, but helped foster communication and trust between my family and peers. It is a fundamental symbol for teamwork and camaraderie. The shape of the glove also highlights the concavity of the coin. Two wheat sheaves unite with the braided lace of the glove to form a ring. This stands for American unity, stitched together to form one nation. The wheat celebrates a love for our bountiful land and home.
