Four Essential Factors of a Successful Commemorative Coin

In a recent piece for Money.org, we discussed the reasons why we thought that the 2014 National Baseball Hall of Fame commemorative coins would be a smashing success, and it turns out we were right. On the first day of issuance, the U.S. Mint sold out of their 50,000 allotment of proof and uncirculated gold coins, and the secondary market for these coins is very strong, with prices nearly $300 above the original issuance price. While we discussed some of the reasons why we thought the coins would be a success, we wanted to take a step back and highlight what we believe are four essential factors to a successful commemorative coin in hopes of providing you with guidance in your future coin endeavors.
