Proof First Spouse Coins
Proof First Spouse Gold Coins - In 2007, the United States Mint released the first four coins in a series of Gold First Spouse 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 to coincide with the release of the four annual Presidential $1 Coins. These proof Gold coins are struck on specially prepared planchets multiple times to provide a unique finish that appeals to collectors. The dies used in this process give the coins a mirrorlike appearance, in which the coin's device appears to be floating over the liquid of the field.
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.
