Proof First Spouse Coins (PCGS Certified)
PCGS Certified 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 mirrorlike appearance, in which the coin's device appears to be floating over the liquid of the field. This category contains coins that have all been certified by PCGS, one of the top two coin grading services which guarantees that you will receive the coins you purchase in the exact condition you select.
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.
PCGS uses the Sheldon Grading Scale from 1 (barely identifiable) to 70 (absolute perfection). This allows you to buy with confidence that each coin will come sealed and guaranteed to arrive in the condition you select. 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
