Stunning Portrait of First Lady Lucy Hayes

Obverse: The obverse features an incredibly lifelike, near profile portrait of First Lady Lucy Hayes, wearing a charming ruffled style collar with her hair swept back and gathered in an elegant bun. Inscribed "LUCY HAYES," "IN GOD WE TRUST," "LIBERTY 2011," the West Pont Mint mark "W" and "19th 1877-1881."

Reverse: Mrs. Hayes is depicted on the reverse, clapping and cheering as two children participate in the first Easter Egg Roll on the White House lawn. After Congress banned the annual Easter egg roll activity to preserve the grounds of the U.S. Capitol, it was Mrs. Hayes who opened the White House's South Lawn to egg rollers, so that the tradition could continue. The joy-filled scene is encircled by a frame containing the inscriptions "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," "E PLURIBUS UNUM," "$10," "1/2 OZ." and ".9999 FINE GOLD."
