On the Reverse of the Eliza Johnson First Spouse Gold Coin, three children can be seen dancing in front of a Marine Band fiddler. First Lady Johnson had a strong maternal instinct and would have preferred to staying in Tennessee watching her young grandchildren, helping them with their education, instead of being the center of society in Washington. In fact her health was so fragile, and her demeanor so homebound that her daughters acted in her stead during public events, while the quiet, more personal settings of dinners and meetings were her responsibilities. This all was put aside for her love of children, which was showcased during her husband’s 60th Birthday Ball, where 300 of Washington’s sons and daughters attended the festivities. The only adults were President Johnson, his wife, and their grown children. Lady Johnson greeted each guest personally while seated to the side of the festivities in a comfortable armchair.
The Eliza Johnson First Spouse Gold Coin is rich in history, and intrinsic value. Like the other First Spouse Gold Coin in the program, the Eliza Johnson First Spouse coin is a representation of not only the U.S. Mint’s artist talent and achievement, but also of the brilliance of American coinage in general.
