This Gold commemorative comes complete with box and certificate of authenticity. Margaret "Peggy" Taylor was born on a tobacco plantation to a wealthy Maryland family. As a child, she was friends with Martha Washington's granddaughter. Peggy met her husband, Zachary, in Lexington, KY. She would follow her husband around the continent as he moved his way up the ranks of the U.S. Army.
Zachary received the Whig Party nomination and ran for president in 1848. Peggy was not happy that her husband may be the next president of the United States. As it turned out, she was right. Zachary died after two years as president. Peggy was too devastated to attend the funeral.
The obverse of the coin features an image of Margaret Taylor designed by Phebe Hemphill and sculpted by Charles Vickers. The reverse showcases a younger Margaret attending to an injured soldier during the Seminole War. The reverse was designed by Mary Beth Zeitz and sculpted by Jim Licaretz.
