First Spouse Coins
1/2 oz Gold First Spouse 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 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.
Select a specific minting issue by year and First Spouse to order Brilliant Uncirculated coins. Another option is to order the Random Year selection where there will be a mixture of years, First Spouse coins, and Brilliant Uncirculated and Proof finishes. These are the only 1/2 oz .9999 fine Gold coins issued by the U.S. Mint.
