California artist Cassie McFarland donated to the National Baseball
Hall of Fame and Museum the childhood baseball glove she used as
inspiration for her winning commemorative coin design.
The glove was presented March 27 by U.S. Treasurer Rosie Rios on
McFarland’s behalf to Jane Forbes Clark, chairman of the National
Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum.
The presentation was made as part of the coin sales launch
ceremonies held at the Russell Senate Office Building in Washington, D.C.
McFarland used the glove as the inspiration for the design that now
appears on the obverses of the gold $5 half eagle, silver dollar and
copper-nickel clad half dollars.

commemorative coins in the April 14 weekly edition of Coin World.
