This marks the seventh year of the First Spouse Gold Coin Series, the U.S. Mint’s first coin program to feature our Nation’s first spouses. A minimum of four one-half ounce, $10 24-karat gold coins will be minted and released annually in the order the spouses served in the position. The coins are minted with proof and uncirculated finishes and are available individually. Each First Spouse Gold Coin coincides with the release of the corresponding circulating Presidential $1 Coin. In 2013, the U.S. Mint will release five coins in the series – Ida McKinley, Edith Roosevelt, Helen Taft, Ellen Wilson and Edith Wilson.
