Caroline Harrison First Spouse Gold Coin

The Caroline Harrison First Spouse Gold Coin will be released by the US Mint as the third of four 2012-dated strikes of the First Spouse Gold Coin Program. Each coin will be struck to either proof or uncirculated condition from 1/2 ounce of .9999 fine gold.

This strike honors the wife of former President of the United States Benjamin Harrison. Caroline will be featured with a portrait on the obverse of the gold coin and a scene emblematic of her life on the reverse.

Congress authorized the First Spouse Gold Coin series as part of the Presidential $1 Coin Act of 2005 (Public Law 109-145). Under the Act, 1/2 ounce .9999 fine gold coins were to be struck honoring the spouses of the former US Presidents.

The coins of the series are released in association with the Presidential $1 Coins which honor the Presidents themselves and appear in the order in which the individual served in office. In the instances where a President served without a spouse, typically the image of the mythical figure of Liberty appears on the Spouse Coin instead. The only exception to this rule is the 2012 Alice Paul Gold Coin.

Three other strikes will appear in 2012 as part of the series - the aforementioned Alice Paul Gold Coins , the Frances Cleveland (First Term) Gold Coins and the Frances Cleveland (Second Term) Gold Coins.

The US Mint will also strike and release bronze medal replicas of these gold coins.
