Proof First Spouse Coins
1/2 oz Proof Gold First Spouse Coins - In 2007, the United States Mint released the first four coins in a series of Gold First Spouse Coins which were 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 and will coincide with the release of the four annual Presidential $1 Coins. Proof 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.
These are the only 1/2 oz .9999 fine Gold coins issued by the U.S. Mint and you can select a specific minting issue by year and First Spouse when you order. Each individual First Spouse coin comes with a display box and a certificate of authenticity. Start building your collection and watch for the release of future additions to the series.
