Frances Cleveland is the only individual to be featured on two separate issues of the First Spouse Gold Coin Program. This is due to the fact that her husband served as President of the United States during two nonconsecutive terms. The second coin is issued for the 24th Presidency, covering the years 1893-1897.
This coin will feature another portrait of the First Lady on the obverse, along with the order of the Presidency and the dates of the term. The selected obverse was designed by Barbara Fox and sculpted by Phebe Hemphill. The reverse of the coin was designed and sculpted by Joseph Menna and is intended to represent the popularity of the First Lady with the public. Inscriptions include "United States of America", the motto "E Pluribus Unum", "$10", and "1.2 oz. .999 Fine Gold".
A release date for the Frances Cleveland Second Term Gold Coin is not yet known. Striking problems experienced for the first two issues of the series have compressed the timetable for issue. The US Mint does expect to mint and issue this coin within the calendar year, as required by law.
The maximum mintage level for the coin across proof and uncirculated coins has been established at 13,000 coins. The ratio of proof to uncirculated coins will be determined based on customer orders. Pricing for the coins is determined on a weekly basis, following the average market price of gold.
