Full Description

The 2008 Elizabeth Monroe Gold Coin began the second year of the 24 karat gold series to honor the First Ladies of the United States. Some of the early excitement had faded, leading to reduced mintage. Coins were released on February 28, 2008 and limited to a maximum authorized mintage of 40,000. The coins eventually sold a combined total of 12,452 across both proof and uncirculated options. Released on the same schedule as the Presidential Dollar program, the First Spouse gold bullion coins are struck in .9999 fine gold and weigh one-half ounce and has the denomination of $10. These $10 1/2 oz First Spouse Gold Commemorative's may or may not arrive in the U.S. Mint capsule and are in uncirculated or proof condition. The 1/2 ounce First Spouse $10 gold coin series honors this behind-the-scenes work that has fundamentally shaped our nation. Authorized by the Presidential $1 Coin Act of 2005, each First Spouse Gold Coin is struck in 24 karat and contains one-half ounce of gold. The coins carry a legal tender face value of $10.

The Obverse

The obverse of the coin, designed by Joel Iskowitz and sculpted by Don Everhart, features a portrait of the First Lady Elizabeth Monroe and the duration that she served as First Lady.

The Reverse

The reverse of the coin, designed by Donna Weaver and sculpted by Charles Vickers, depicts Elizabeth Monroe at a reception for the reopening of the White House held in 1818.
