Coins in the series are struck to either proof or uncirculated condition from 1/2 ounce of .9999 fine (24-karat) gold. Each features a face value of $10 but the coin’s intrinsic value is worth much more.

The coin honoring Abigail appeared second in the series because she was married to John Adams, the second President of the United States.

Additional 2007 First Spouse Gold Coins

Typically, four coins were and are issued annually in the program. The four appearing 2007 were:

  • 2007-W Martha Washington First Spouse Gold Coin
  • 2007-W Abigail Adams First Spouse Gold Coin
  • 2007-W Jefferson’s Liberty First Spouse Gold Coin
  • 2007-W Dolley Madison First Spouse Gold Coin

The authorizing legislation for the coins dictates that if the President served without a spouse, an image of the mythical figure of Liberty will be used on the coin instead. This was the case for the above Jefferson’s Liberty Coin. Thomas Jefferson’s wife had passed away almost two decades before he assumed the office of President.
