Opposed to her husband's political ambitions for years, Jane actually fainted upon hearing the news of his nomination for President. Her grief was further enhanced when, two months before his inauguration as President, their only surviving child was killed in a freak train accident. Jane never fully recovered from his death.

A maximum of 40,000 Jane Pierce coins will be struck across all product options.
