In November, Kansas City Fed President Esther George joined in the unveiling of U.S. Mint designs for the 2022 Negro Leagues Baseball Commemorative Coin Program.
The coin designs were showcased during a ceremony at the museum, in the 18th & Vine District of Kansas City. George joined Missouri U.S. Sen. Roy Blunt, Kansas City Mayor Quinton Lucas, External LinkNegro Leagues Baseball Museum President Bob Kendrick, and Museum Board Chairman Kevin Battle. George provided remarks and helped Battle reveal the coin designs.
The Commemorative Coin Program consists of three denominations—a $5 gold coin, a $1 silver coin and a half-dollar clad coin. View details and purchase information in the External LinkMint’s product schedule. Legislation to create the coins was signed into law in 2020 to mark 100 years since the Negro National League was founded in Kansas City. Under the law, the Mint’s surcharges on purchases of the coins will be transferred to the museum to help pay for educational and outreach programs and exhibits.
