Product Details
The NGC population report lists just 175 coins graded a perfect Proof 70 Ultra Cameo Early Releases! This adds even more collectibility to this 1/2 oz .9999 fine Gold coin, which depicts Ida McKinley (née Saxton) crocheting, her most loved hobby.

Born in 1847 to a well-to-do family, Ida Saxton worked at her father's bank as a cashier, a position normally filled by men. She met William in 1867 and they married 4 years later in January 1871. Soon after the loss of her children Katherine and Ida, in 1875 and 1873 respectively, her health began to deteriorate as she developed epilepsy and became completely dependent on her husband. William loved her devoutly and cared for her so much that he insisted he be seated next to her during state dinners, which at the time was very untraditional.

She remained First Lady of the United States until her husband was assassinated while still in office in 1901. Though she was too distraught to attend his funeral, she visited his grave every day until her own death 6 years later. The house she was born and raised in is now a National Historical Site in Canton, Ohio.
