Your coin was designed by Canadian artist Steve Hepburn and features a stylized baseball batter in a classic pose. Having made contact with the ball, the batter completes the arc of his swing—arms, hands, and bat fully extended, right leg twisting behind as his left leg supports a swing of exceptional power. This figure is layered over an abstract circling form that symbolizes the event's speed, skill and international inclusiveness. The batter is flanked on the right side by the official logo of the World Baseball Classic tournament. Embossed text on the reverse image's polished silver background features the date "2013" and the face value of "20 DOLLARS."
Your coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded maroon clamshell case lined with flock and protected by a custom sleeve.
A thoughtful gift for baseball lovers and sports buffs!
