First Spouse Coins
First Spouse Gold Coins - In 2007, the United States Mint released the first four coins in a series of Gold First Spouse Coins. These coins are the government's first 1/2 oz .9999 fine Gold coins and are also the first commemorative 1/2 oz Gold coins. With a face value of $10, these Gold coins are minted and released annually in the order the First Ladies served in the White House. Each First Spouse Gold Coin will be minted in Uncirculated and Proof conditions and will coincide with the release of the four annual Presidential $1 Coins.
The obverse of each First Spouse Gold coin features a portrait of the First Lady with an inscription of their name, presidential order and years of their term as first spouse, along with the year of minting. The reverse highlights a unique image emblematic of that spouse's life and work. In the few cases when a president served without a spouse, a Gold coin is issued bearing an image of Liberty, while the reverse shows an image depicting the president's life.
The purchase of the First Spouse Gold Coins adds a piece of unsung history to your collection or investment portfolio. Containing U.S. Gold, each coin features a display that memorializes the impact that each First Spouse made in their lives. Available in both uncirculated and proof conditions, you can add these untold stories of American history to your collection.
