The 1/2 oz US Mint First Spouse Gold Coin program was introduced in 2007 and authorized for production within the Presidential $1 Coin Act of 2005. Each First Spouse coin design is released in the same year as the Presidential $1 Coin bearing the image of the spouse who served as President of the United States of America.
The series starts with the spouses of the Founding Fathers who went on to serve as President of the United States. The 2007 debut releases included Martha Washington, Abigail Adams, and Dolley Madison. As Thomas Jefferson was not married, an image of Liberty as featured on American coins of his era is depicted in place of a First Spouse.
On the obverse of each 1/2 oz Proof US Mint First Spouse Gold Coin is an effigy of the women who served as First Spouse alongside their partners. The most recent First Spouses to feature in the program include Pat Nixon, Betty Ford, and Nancy Reagan. Four presidents had an image of Liberty from their time in office released as they were single men. These include Thomas Jefferson, Andrew Jackson, Martin Van Buren, and James Buchanan. Jeffersons Liberty is inspired by the Draped Bust design from the 1800 Half-Cent coin.
The reverse of all 1/2 oz US Mint First Spouse Gold Coins includes a design inspired by the First Spouses time in office or the achievements of the US President represented. All these coins are proof specimens with frosted designs and mirrored backgrounds.
These 1/2 oz Proof US Mint First Spouse Gold Coins are yours to purchase in perfect condition. The PCGS or NGC assigned a PF70 grade to these coins because each has full, original mint luster and no flaws. These coins are chosen at random. We cannot guarantee a specific design or hand-pick varying designs if you buy more than one.
