The Anna Harrison Gold coins were first first released on March 5, 2009. They are struck in proof and uncirculated condition from 1/2 ounce of 24-karat .9999 fine gold. The spouse series compliments the Presidential Dollar series and both are tied to approximately the same schedule of four new releases a year.

Anna Harrison's coin was the first release for 2009, but the ninth in the series that started in 2007. She has the distinction of being the only First Lady who was alive during her husband's tenure, but to never have lived in the White House since it was constructed. This is because she was too ill to join William for his inauguration, and by the time she was ready to travel to D.C., William had passed away.

A bronze medal created in the exact likeness of the gold versions is also available from the US Mint.
