Sarah Polk First Spouse Gold Coin

The fourth First Spouse Gold Coin of the year went on sale yesterday. This year there will be a total of five different coin designs released, so another one is coming in the winter months. This release was the Sarah Polk First Spouse Gold Coin.

Sarah Polk First Spouse Gold

Sarah Polk devoted much of her marriage to furthering the political career of her husband, James K. Polk. After he was elected President, she served as his personal secretary, the only First Lady to take on this capacity. The reverse of the coin depicts her working with her husband in the White House.

The coins are minted in 24 karat gold and contain one-half ounce of gold. They are minted in uncirculated and proof version at the West Point Mint. The coins were priced at $654 for the proof coin and $641 for the uncirculated coin. This was an increase over the recent prices for the coins due to the higher market price of gold.

Mintage for the recent First Spouse coins have been dwindling, which might make this series more interesting in the long run.
