First Spouse Coin Program
rom the U.S. Mint website:
The United States is honoring our Nation's first spouses by issuing one-half ounce $10 gold coins featuring their images in the order that they served as first spouse. The United States Mint issues First Spouse Gold Coins in conjunction with the Presidential $1 Coins issued honoring the Presidents. The 2012 First Spouse Gold Coins feature Alice Paul and the Suffrage Movement, Frances Cleveland (first term), Caroline Harrison and Frances Cleveland (second term).
The First Spouse Gold Coin obverses (heads sides) feature portraits of the first spouses, 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.
