Abigail Adams was the first First Lady to live in what became known as the White House. She was known to hang the presidential laundry in the unfinished East Room to dry.
Abigail’s First Spouse Gold Coin contains a portrait of her on the Obverse or heads side, designed and sculpted by Joseph Menna. The Reverse was designed by Thomas Cleveland and sculpted by Phebe Hemphill. It depicts a younger Abigail writing to her husband as he attended the Second Continental Congress, and her famous words "remember the ladies".
