First Spouse Gold Coins

The United States Mint honors the First Spouses of American Presidents by issuing 1/2 Oz. $10 gold coins featuring their images, in the order they served as First Spouse.  The United States Mint issues First Spouse Gold Coins in conjunction with the Presidential Golden Dollars as the First Spouse Gold Coins program is authorized by the Presidential $1 Coin Act of 2005.

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, "IN GOD WE TRUST," and "LIBERTY." Each coin has a unique reverse (tails) design featuring an image emblematic of the respective spouse's life and work, as well as the inscriptions "UNITED STATES of AMERICA," "E PLURIBUS UNUM," "$10," 1/2 OZ.," and ".9999 FINE GOLD."

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 the respective president's life.

All the First Spouse Coins are struck at the West Point Mint and display a prominent "W" mintmark. The coins are struck in both Proof and Brilliant Uncirculated Condition, and are also available professionally graded as First Spouse Gold Coins (PCGS) and First Spouse Gold Coins (NGC) at ModernCoinMart.

First Spouse coins make an excellent addition to any coin collection. With significant pure 24-karat gold content, they can add substantial value to a collection containing both the Presidential Golden Dollars and the $10 First Spouse .9999 half-ounce gold coins.

First Spouse Releases

While presidents cannot be placed on a coin until their death, First Spouses must be put on a coin in the same year as the respective President, thus First Spouses may be placed on coins while still living. Should a President have had more than one spouse while in office, such as John Tyler, each spouse's coin will be released, resulting in five or more commemoratives that year. In addition to the gold coins, bronze medals will be produced for each First Spouse by the U.S. Mint.
