First Spouse Coins

In honor of the indelible work and rich history of our Nation’s First Ladies, The U.S. Mint is honored to issue the First Spouse Gold Coin Series.
Beginning in 2007, the U.S. Mint began honoring our Nation’s First Ladies by issuing one-half ounce One Dollar gold coins featuring their images in the order they served as First Lady. This is the first coin program to feature our Nation’s First Spouses. Each First Spouse 24K Gold Coin coincides with the release of the corresponding circulating Presidential One Dollar Coin and are minted in proof and uncirculated finishes in 1/2 OZ. and .9999 FINE GOLD.

The First Spouse Gold Coin obverses (heads sides) feature portraits of the First Spouses and inscriptions of their names, the order and years of their term as First Spouse, the year of minting or issuance, IN GOD WE TRUST and LIBERTY. Each coin has a unique reverse (tails) design featuring an image emblematic of that spouse’s life and work, as well as the inscriptions UNITED STATES of AMERICA, E PLURIBUS UNUM.

When a president served without a First Spouse, a gold coin is issued bearing an obverse image emblematic of Liberty as depicted on a circulating coin of that era and a reverse image emblematic of a theme of that president’s life.
