First Spouse Coins

Posted on May 21st, 2014 by Goldman Buyer

We are used to seeing past presidents on coins, but what about their wives?

The U.S. Mint has revealed designs for the 2014 First Spouse Gold Coins. This is the eighth year the Mint has released these 1/2-ounce 24 karat gold coin series honoring the First Ladies of the United States.

This year’s collection includes the wives of the 29th to the 32nd presidents – Florence Hardin, Grace Coolidge, Lou Hoover and Eleanor Roosevelt. The front side of each coin features a portrait of the woman, while the reverse shows symbols of her work:

Florence Harding worked with World War I veterans and their families, and was the first First Lady to cast a vote in a presidential election. Her coin features a ballot box, the letters WWV, and a camera to symbolize her use of photography in her husband’s campaign.

Grace Coolidge advocated for the deaf and hearing impaired, as displayed by the hands spelling “USA” in sign language on the reverse of her coin.

Lou Hoover was the first First Lady to give a public address on the radio. Her coin features a radio with the date of the address – April 19,1929.

Eleanor Roosevelt dedicated her life’s work to humanitarianism. The reverse side of her coin shows a hand lighting a candle to represent how “her glow has warmed the world.”

The release dates for the coins has not been announced.

Customer Testimonial

Had a Great Experience

"I drove all the way from the south side just to sell my silver to Chicago Gold Gallery because of the knowledge and professionalism I received on the phone. They gave me top dollar for my silver and were so fast and friendly. I definitely recommend this business!"

Can't say enough about this place.

This is the most welcoming, non-pretentious place to do business! I was researching where to sell sterling silver I had and ended up choosing here based on the other great reviews. They walked me through the whole process and answered my questions. I got a great price for my items & will go there again.

Love this place!

Chrissy & Joe are all super friendly and easy to work with. I trust them and they will do whatever they can to help you including giving you advice on what you have or what you should look for. I won't ever go anywhere else and I've recommended it to several friends.

I would do business with them again

I had a large collection of silver coins sitting in my safe deposit box for 15+ years. Chrissy was so friendly and helpful she even gave me advice about coins I didn't know. She was more than happy to help me for over an hour in between taking care of other customers. They really did give me top dollar for my coins. Whether you are new or a pro with coins, I can highly recommend you take them here!

Don't Hesitate to call...

I find that Joe at Chicago Gold Gallery consistently offers and pays more for my coins than coin dealers in Chicagoland. He's very nice and easy to deal with. Don't hesitate to call him and preferably visit him.
