First Spouse Gold Coin Release Dates

relesae-dates

Under the authorizing legislation for the First Spouse Gold Coin Program, coins were to be issued for any spouse of a President being honored on a Presidential Dollar. Additionally, coins featuring a depiction of Liberty were to be issued for any President who served in office without a spouse.

This resulted in the release of four different coins per year, with the exception of 2009 and 2013. For each of these two  years, one of the Presidents had a first and second wife during their time in office, necessitating an additional coin. The final year of the series saw the issuance of three coins for eligible spouses.

Release dates for the First Spouse Gold Coins were generally revealed by the United States Mint during the year of issue.  Except for the first two coins of the series, which were released together, coins have been released individually at intervals throughout the year.

The table below presents the release schedule for the entire series of First Spouse Gold Coins.
