Included in the set is a Thomas Jefferson Presidential $1 Coin and bronze medal replica of the Jefferson’s Liberty First Spouse Gold Coin. Typically, the spouse coin and medals show the featured President’s wife. However, as Jefferson’s wife passed away nineteen years before he assumed the Presidency, an image of the mythical figure of Liberty is used instead.

The use of Liberty in place of a spouse was dictated by the Presidential Coin Act of 2005 which authorized both the Presidential $1 Coin series and the First Spouse Gold Coin and Medal series..

2007 Presidential Coin & Spouse Medal Sets

Four unique Presidential $1 Coin and Spouse Medal Sets were issued by the US Mint in 2007. They were:

  • 2007 – George Washington and Martha Washington
  • 2007 – John Adams and Abigail Adams
  • 2007 – Thomas Jefferson and Liberty
  • 2007 – James Madison and Dolley Madison

Typically, four sets are issued annually, however, if a serving President had more than one spouse while in office, both are to be honored on separate coins and medals meaning more than four of these sets could be seen in a single year.

Issue Information

Both the Jefferson $1 Coin and Liberty Medal are mounted in a plastic card with a colorful image of the former President imprinted on it.

The United States Mint released the Jefferson Coin and Medal Set in 2007.

U.S. Mint Production Facility

Designer & Sculptor / Engraver

Joseph Menna designed and sculpted the portrait of Thomas Jefferson found on the obverse (heads side) of the Presidential $1 Coin. The reverse (tails side) of all of the coins in the series show an image of the Statue of Liberty designed and sculpted by Don Everhart.

An image of Liberty first seen on the Draped Bust Half-Cent coin from 1800–1808 is featured on the obverse of the Jefferson Spouse Coin. It was originally designed by United States Mint Chief Engraver Robert Scot with sculpting work completed for the Spouse Coin done by Phebe Hemphill. Charles Vickers designed and sculpted the reverse to show the Thomas Jefferson Memorial with the words of the memorial shown over it.
