The reverse design by Canadian artist Glen Green utilizes the coin’s deeply convex curvature to recreate the rounded shape of a basketball. In addition to the engineering complexity of the coin’s unusual shape, precision engraving replicates the tactile elements that are famously associated with the ball—specifically the recessed lines and dimpled surface—while the application of colour captures its iconic orange appearance. In the foreground, an engraved action shot captures the classic, fast-paced intensity of the game: the player on the left leaps towards the net as he goes for a dunk shot, while the player on the right moves quickly to defend the shot with his outstretched arm. On both sides, two engraved basketballs overlap the wide band that frames the reverse image, where the word “CANADA” is engraved above the commemorative dates “1891-2016” that mark basketball’s 125th anniversary.
