House Approves Baseball HOF Coin

Cooperstown, NY (WIBX) – The House of Representatives has approved the minting of a series of coins commemorating the National Baseball Hall of Fame.

Proposed in July by Congressmen Richard Hanna, Mike Doyle and Joe Barton, the bill received overwhelming support from the House, including co-sponsorship from nearly 300 members of Congress.

The Baseball Hall of Fame Commemorative Coin Act would allow the U.S. Mint to produce a select number of coins for one year, starting on January 1, 2015. Surcharges from each coin sold will be paid to the Hall of Fame to finance its daily operations.

The Act still needs to be passed by the Senate, with sponsors expecting the President to sign the bill later this fall.
