The United States Mint issued the first coins in the First Spouse Gold Coin Program in 2007, setting in motion a series of precious gold collectibles designed to commemorate Presidential spouses across the span of American history from the early days of the republic down to the early 1990s. The twenty-ninth release in the series paid tribute to Florence Harding, who spent two years in the White House before her husband’s untimely passing ended his administration. Known for her facility for managing the press, her ability to get out the newly-available women’s vote, and for being a loyal friend to veterans, Mrs. Harding was a force to be reckoned with in that short time. The 2014-W 1/2 oz Proof First Spouse US Mint Florence Harding Gold Coin celebrates that legacy, and is now available from JM Bullion.

The First Lady of President Warren G. Harding was the first of the First Ladies to be able to cast a ballot for her husband’s election as women’s suffrage came into effect. She was known for her ability to appeal to female voters and for dealing effectively with the press. Perhaps most of all, she was known as an ally of veterans, hosting garden parties for them and personally taking up their causes when needed.
The 2014-W Proof US Mint First Spouse Florence Harding Gold Coin is a proof-quality coin that features mirrored backgrounds and frosted foreground details. It ships fully insured against loss or damage and comes in an elegant wooden case with a Certificate of Authenticity.
The obverse field features the name and portrait of Florence Harding, accompanied by the “W” mint mark of the West Point Mint, the coin’s year of issue and number in the series, her years of service, and the lettering “IN GOD WE TRUST” and “LIBERTY.”
The reverse field brings together multiple symbols of Mrs. Harding’s life: a stylized ballot and ballot box, a camera and a combined torch and fountain pen, and initials representing veterans. This is accompanied by the inscriptions “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,” “E PLURIBUS UNUM,” “$10,” and “1/2 OZ. .9999 FINE GOLD.”
