Included in the set was a George Washington Presidential $1 Coin and a bronze medal replica of the Martha Washington First Spouse Gold Coin. It is not surprising that those two strikes were the first for their respective series as George Washington was the first President of the United States and Martha was his wife.

Both series were authorized by the Presidential Coin Act of 2005 (public law 109-145) and both first appeared in 2007 with the strikes included in this set.

2007 Presidential Coin & Spouse Medal Sets

The US Mint typically issues four Presidential Coin and Spouse Medal Sets annually. The four 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

Of note, the act authorizing both series made allowances for the spouse coins if the president served without a wife or husband. In that instance, an image of the mythical figure of Liberty would be used on the spouse coin instead. This is exemplified by the Thomas Jefferson and Liberty set shown above.
