$10 First Spouse
The $10 First Spouse gold coins were struck as a complementary bullion series running in concordance with the Presidential $1 coin program, which honors deceased former United States presidents in the order they served, beginning with George Washington in 2007 and ending with Ronald Reagan in 2016. The First Spouse $10 coins, issued alongside the Presidential $1 coins, feature the spouses (all women) of the presidents who are honored on the $1 coins. While the $10 First Spouse coins are highly collectible, they are essentially gold bullion coins, each containing one-half ounce of .9999-fine gold.
Some in the numismatic community are paying more attention to the $10 First Spouse coins, which were made in relatively small quantities and, for the time being, trade at levels very close to spot. Many of the later issues in uncirculated grades feature mintages of less than 2,000 pieces and could become significantly more valuable in time should interest in the $10 First Spouse series increase.
