Baseball hall to be on coins

A bill for a commemorative coin recognizing the 75th anniversary for the National Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown was signed into law by President Obama, announced Rep. Richard L. Hanna, R-24, Barneveld, and U.S. Sen. Kirsten E. Gillibrand.

The legislation, introduced last summer, directs the Secretary of the Treasury to mint 50,000 $5 gold coins, 400,000 $1 silver coins, and 750,000 half-dollar coins during a one-year period starting Jan. 1, 2014. The hall marks its 75th anniversary that year.

"I am privileged to represent Cooperstown and, as a past 10-year resident, sponsoring this bill in the House was especially meaningful for me," Hanna said.

The legislation "will build on the recognition Cooperstown deserves" and honor its history, said Gillibrand.
