Frances Cleveland (First Term) First Spouse Gold Coin

The United States Mint will release the Frances Cleveland (1st Term) First Spouse Gold Coin as the second of four strikes in 2012 as part of the First Spouse Gold Coin Program. Strikes of the program are composed of 1/2 ounce of 99.99% pure gold in both proof and uncirculated conditions.

Each Frances Cleveland (First Term) First Spouse Gold Coin marks new territory for the First Spouse Gold Coin Program. Since her husband, Grover, served two non-consecutive terms as the President of the United States, Frances will be featured on two different strikes of the First Spouse Gold Coin Program - the only individual to be honored as such. The second release featuring her image will appear later in 2012.

The First Spouse Gold Coin Program debuted in 2007 and honors the spouses of the former Presidents of the United States with an image of the spouse on the obverse of a gold coin with a scene from their life shown on the reverse. The strikes are released on a schedule tied to the Presidential $1 Coin Program which honors the former Presidents themselves in the order in which they served.

Four Presidential $1 Coins are struck and released annually with their associated Spouse Coin appearing shortly after. In the case where a President had more than one spouse while in office, both will be honored on separate coins.

If the President had no spouse while in office, typically the image of the mythical figure of Liberty is used on the associated Spouse Coin. The only exception to this is the Alice Paul First Spouse Gold Coin honoring the famous American Suffragist which is released in association with the Chester Arthur Presidency.

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

Bronze medal replicas of these coins are also to be struck by the US Mint.
