Examples of two different programs from the Mint were included in the set. A James Madison Presidential $1 Coin represented the circulating Presidential Coins and a Dolley Madison bronze medal represented the First Spouse Gold Coin series. Both of these programs debuted in 2007 and are issued on a schedule linked to the order in which the President served in office.

As Madison was the fourth President of the United States, his coins (as well as the coins and medals of his wife Dolley) appeared fourth from the Mint.

2007 Presidential Coin & Spouse Medal Sets

The Mint releases the Presidential Coins (and their respective spouse coins and medals) at a rate of four per year. Those released in 2007 were:

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

The authorizing legislation (Presidential Coin Act of 2005) dictates that if the President was not married during his term, then an image of Liberty will be used on the Spouse coins and medals instead. This is the case with the above Thomas Jefferson Liberty Medal. His wife passed away nineteen years before he assumed the office of President.

Designer & Sculptor / Engraver

Don Everhart also designed and sculpted the portrait of Dolley Madison featured on the obverse of the Spouse Medal. For the reverse, Iskowitz and Everhart teamed up again to show Dolley in the White House insuring important papers and paintings are saved from the White House before it is burned by British Troops in the War of 1812.
