Though the first day of sales for Martha Washington is still a mystery, the First Spouse gold coins are about to make their debut.
The series of half-ounce gold pieces honor the wives of Presidents and are issued at the same pace as the Presidential dollars, which are being released four coins per year.
A set of four First Spouse coins is being offered to participants of the Mint?s subscription program for $1,675.95 per delivery, but the Mint notes that the price is subject to change.
Each coin is .9999 fine (24 karat) gold and has a maximum mintage of 40,000 pieces. Delivery of the set to subscribers is projected to be some time in June. The box will follow in August.
