The First Spouse gold coins series enters it 5th year in 2011. Let’s find out more about each of the First Spouse coin designs and how you can collect each of the designs for a fraction of the cost of buying the gold coins.
First Spouse gold coins are expensive to buy. So how can a coin collector get their hands on U.S. Mint-made commemorations of our nation’s first spouses without having to spend hundreds or thousands dollars to buy those pieces? The U.S Mint now issues bronze medals of the same designs seen on the First Spouse gold coins!
On August 6, 2009, the U.S. Mint released the 3rd installment of the 2009 First Spouse Gold Coins program. This $10 gold coin honors Julia Tyler who was the second wife of President John Tyler. Proof versions of First Spouse gold coins are selling for $629 each; uncirculated First Spouse gold coins sell for $616.
