The NGC population report lists just 129 coins graded a perfect MS-70 Early Releases! This adds more collectibility to the 1/2 oz .9999 fine Gold coin, which depicts the cherry blossoms Helen planted, for which Washington DC is so well known.
William Howard Taft met Helen Herron during a bobsledding party and asked her to marry him three years later. Two months into Taft's presidency, Helen suffered a stroke, impairing her speech. Due to the fact that she never fully recovered from the stroke, she only entertained moderately with the help of her sisters. In her biggest contribution during her time in the White House, Helen arranged for the planting of 3,020 Japanese cherry trees at the Washington Tidal Basin. She physically planted the first two saplings in March 1912.

Comments about 2013-W 1/2 oz Uncirculated Helen Taft MS-70 NGC ER:
I love the Uncirculated Gold First Spouse series.
- Insanely low mintages after the first few issues.
- Silky smooth satin finishes on .9999 fine gold surfaces.
- Interesting historical details on each coin's reverse.
- Overdue recognition for the partners to America's highest office.
- Select modern executions of classic American designs.
The Proof examples are nice, but there's something deeply satisfying about the luster emanating from these half ounce chunks of pure gold perfection.
