Alice Paul First Spouse Gold Coin

The Alice Paul First Spouse Gold Coin will be the first strike of four released by the United States Mint in 2012 as part of the First Spouse Gold Coin Program. Alice Paul First Spouse Gold Coins will be struck to both proof and uncirculated condition from 1/2 ounce of 99.99% pure gold for sale directly to the public by the US Mint.

When it comes to the First Spouse Gold Coin Program, the Alice Paul strike is an anomaly for the series. Alice Paul was an early 20th century American suffragist, and never the spouse of a former President of the United States.

Her inclusion in the First Spouse Program was as the direction of Congress as part of the Presidential $1 Coin Act of 2005 (Public Law 109-145) which authorized the series. She was chosen for her involvement in the Suffragist Movement which eventually led to the right for women to vote.

Typically, the First Spouse Gold Coins feature the spouses of former US Presidents. However, in circumstances where the President had no spouse while in office, an image of the mythical figure of Liberty is usually used. The exception are the Alice Paul Gold Coins which are issued in association with the Chester A. Arthur Presidency.

Three more strikes will appear in 2012 as part of the First Spouse Gold Coin series. These three strikes are the Frances Cleveland (First Term) Gold Coins, the Caroline Harrison Gold Coins and the Frances Cleveland (Second Term) Gold Coins.

In addition to the gold coins, the US Mint will also strike bronze medal replicas.

Alice Paul Gold Coin Design

Obverse design: The obverse of the Alice Paul First Spouse Gold Coins will contain a portrait of Alice Paul, famous American Suffragist. Her portrait will be surrounded by inscriptions ALICE PAUL, IN GOD WE TRUST, LIBERTY and 2012.

Reverse design: The reverse of this strike will contain a design emblematic of the suffragist movement, as required by the original authorizing legislation. Inscriptions include UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, E PLURIBUS UNUM, $10, and 1/2 OZ .9999 FINE GOLD.
