As Martha was the wife of the first President of the United States, George Washington, it was only fitting that her coin be the first to appear in the series. Subsequent coins were and are released in the order upon which the associated President served in office.

The entire First Spouse Gold Coin series are struck from 1/2 ounce of 24-karat gold to either proof or uncirculated condition. The series calls for the coins to be released at an approximate rate of four per year.

Additional 2007 First Spouse Gold Coins

Four coins were released in 2007 as part of the First Spouse Gold Coin Program. They 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

As indicated above with the Jefferson’s Liberty Coin, if a President served without a spouse, the mythical figure of Liberty will be used on the coin instead. Thomas Jefferson’s wife had passed away nineteen years before he took office.
