New James Buchanan $1 Coin & Buchanan’s Liberty First Spouse Set Released September 23

james-buchanan-photo-by-pohick2.jpg The United States Mint has announced it will release the James Buchanan Presidential $1 coin and First Spouse medal set on September 23.

While most of our presidents have had a first spouse while in office, James Buchanan didn’t.

So the U.S. Mint is pairing up his coin with a ‘First Spouse’ medal called Buchanan’s Liberty — it features a design of Miss Liberty as she appeared on the Quarter Eagle ($2.50) gold coin during Buchanan’s presidency.

The James Buchanan $1 coin and First Spouse medal set costs $11.95.

My love for coins and numismatics began when I was 11 years old. I primarily collect and study U.S. coins produced during the 20th century. I'm a member of both the American Numismatic Association (ANA) and the Numismatic Literary Guild (NLG). I've also been studying meteorology and watching weather patterns for years. I enjoy sharing little-known facts and fun stuff about coins, weather, travel, health, food, and living green.
