With the aim of celebrating each of America’s First Spouses from the beginning of the republic down to the early Nineties, the U.S. Mint began issuing pure gold collectibles in the First Spouse Gold Coin program in 2007. The thirty-fifth release in the series was devoted to Jacqueline Kennedy, a First Lady known for her courage and poise in extraordinary circumstances that included the Cuban Missile Crisis and the assassination of her husband. She made notable diplomatic visits around the world that are commemorated on the 2015-W 1/2 oz Proof First Spouse US Mint Jacqueline Kennedy Gold Coin, now available for online purchase from the team at JM Bullion.

This is a coin with a Proof finish created by multiple strikes on specially-treated metal, using hand-polished dies to create a signature “cameo effect” with a glamorous shine, mirrored backgrounds, and frosted raised elements that accentuate the intricacy of its sculpted details. It exhibits the talents of noted sculptor Phebe Hemphill and designs by Susan Gamble and artist and illustrator Benjamin Sowards. The coin’s aesthetic appeal matches its tribute to a First Lady who brought a strong interest in the arts to the White House, and who was famous for charming world leaders in the course of numerous trips abroad.
The 2015-W 1/2 oz Proof US Mint First Spouse Jacqueline Kennedy Gold Coin comes in an elegant wooden case with a Certificate of Authenticity. Each shipment is fully insured by the team at JM Bullion against any chance of mishap during the shipping process.

The reverse field shows a magnolia flower overlaid on a global map, with each of its petals touching the location of a notable diplomatic visit, along with the inscriptions “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,” “E PLURIBUS UNUM,” “$10,” and “1/2 OZ. .9999 FINE GOLD.”
