There will be a $5 gold coin, a $1 silver coin, and a half-dollar clad coin — which is a mix of 92 percent copper and 8 percent nickel. The half-dollar coin will have the highest mintage limit, producing 750,000 across all options. According to the U.S. Mint, 400,000 of the silver-dollar coin will be minted and only 50,000 of the $5 gold piece will be made.
The silver dollar is 90 percent silver and 10 percent copper; while the $5-gold coin is 90 percent gold and 10 percent alloy. The gold coin is the lightest, weighing 8.359 grams, while the silver coin is the heaviest at 26.73 grams and the half-dollar weighs 11.34 grams. Surcharges for each coin sold will be paid to the National Baseball Hall of Fame, an independent not-for-profit educational institution, to help fund its operations. Surcharges per coin are $35 for gold, $10 for silver, and $5 for each half-dollar.
