Description & Features+

June 4, 1838: An open pasture, a hand-hewn “club,” and a ball made of yarn and calfskin were all that was necessary to stage a match that made sports history. Fittingly shaped like a baseball, the reverse of this convex-shaped coin steps back in time 180 years ago, to the first detailed record of a baseball game played in Canada, with an image that captures the early spirit of a sport beloved by so many Canadians today! CELEBRATE BASEBALL HISTORY: A special commemoration of the 180th anniversary of the first detailed record of a baseball game played in Canada. SHAPED TO FIT THE THEME: The curvature of this convex-shaped coin results in an unusually shaped, fine silver canvas for our baseball-themed celebration. The addition of engraved “stitchwork” completes the effect—the reverse looks like a baseball! MODERN CRAFTSMANSHIP BUT AN OLD-TIME FEELING: Modern engraving techniques and cutting-edge technology allow for a wealth of engraved details in an image that has a remarkably vintage feel! The historic nature of the celebration isn’t lost in many of the other design elements—including the choice of font and a closer view of the equipment used at that time. ONE FOR THE FANS: The curved reverse alone knocks it out of the park! Crafted from 99.99% fine silver, this coin’s limited mintage, its theme and artistry make it a must-have for baseball fans, history enthusiasts and collectors of specially shaped coins. DESIGN:
The reverse design by artist Steve Hepburn deftly combines art and technology to re-create a historic sports moment. Paired with engraved stitchwork, the coin’s curvature transforms the reverse into a baseball-shaped canvas fit for commemorating the most detailed earliest documented game played in Canada. The highly detailed, precisely engraved image provides a prime view of the action during the match, which took place on June 4, 1838, in Beachville, Ont. As seen from behind the “knocker’s stone” (home plate today), the participants from Beachville and Zorra are all in position: one team stands in the open field, ready to catch the ball; a “knocker” (batter) from the opposing team grips the “club” (bat) as he keeps his focus on the ball tossed by the “thrower” (pitcher); to the right of him, an “umpire” leans in to rule whether the ball is “fair” or “unfair.” At their feet, the denomiation “25 Dollars” is engraved in a vintage-looking font; in the arched banner above, the double commemorative dates “1838” and “2018” flank a rendering of the equipment used in that era: two clubs (crossed) and a yarn ball covered by stitched calfskin.
