First Spouse Gold Coins
First Spouse Gold Coins - In 2007, the United States Mint released the first four coins in a series of Gold First Spouse Coins. These Gold coins are the U.S. government's first 1/2 oz .9999 fine Gold coins and are also the first U.S. Mint 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 House. Each First Spouse Gold Coin will be minted in Uncirculated and Proof conditions and will coincide with the release of the four annual Presidential $1 Coins.
The obverse of each First Spouse Gold coin bears a portrait of a First Lady with an inscription of their name, presidential order and the years of their term as first spouse, along with the mintage year. The reverse of these highly collectible Gold coins features a unique image emblematic of that spouse's life and work. For example, the reverse of the Jaqueline Kennedy coin displays a magnolia blossom, which is symbolic of the magnolia trees that Mrs. Kennedy had planted in the White House garden and near President Kennedy's grave site. The petals of the magnolia are stretched across the globe, honoring Mrs. Kennedy’s many notable diplomatic visits. In the few cases when a president served without a spouse, the Gold coin issued depicts the image of Liberty that was used on coinage during the president's term in office, while the reverse shows an image depicting the president's life.
