First Spouse Gold Coins

A series of 24-carat gold coins will display portraits of the former First Spouses of the United States.  The ten-dollar coins, each one made of half an ounce of gold, will feature the Presidents' spouses in the order that they served the country.

The image on the back of each coin will illustrate part of that spouse's life and work, along with standard inscriptions.

When a President (such as Thomas Jefferson) served without a spouse, an image of Liberty from a circulating coin of his era will be used on the front.  The image on the back will illustrate themes from that President's life and work.  First Spouse coins will be released on the same schedule as the Presidential $1 coins.
