However, as Thomas Jefferson’s wife passed away nineteen years before he assumed the office of President, the First Spouse Coin linked to his administration features an image of Liberty. The authorizing legislation for the series dictates that Liberty be used in place of a spouse if there were no spouses during the President’s term in office.

Each First Spouse Gold Coin is struck from 1/2 ounce of 24-karat gold to either proof or uncirculated condition.
