A leading figure in the Women’s Suffrage movement, Alice Paul is featured on the 22nd First Spouse Gold Coin. Though not a First Lady, the legislation which created the series mandated the presence of Paul in the series:
“Design in case of no first spouse: In the case of any President who served without a spouse, the image on the obverse of the bullion coin corresponding to the $1 coin relation to such President shall be an image emblematic of the concept of ‘Liberty.’ As represented in the case of President Chester Alan Arthur, by a design incorporating the name and likeness of Alice Paul, a leading strategist in the suffrage movement, who was instrumental in gaining women the right to vote upon the adoption of the 19th amendment and thus the ability to participate in the election of future Presidents, and who was born on January 11, 1885, during the term of President Arthur.” –Presidential $1 Coin Act of 2005, Public Law 109- 145
Each First Spouse Gold Coin is also specified to be a $10 denomination, and contain one-half ounce of 24-karat (.9999) Fine Gold. Alice Paul is the only non-spouse to be featured in the series, for the previous President’s who were either widows, or bachelors, the image that represent them in the First Spouse Series is the Liberty design featured on popular coinage during their time in office.
A truly remarkable woman, Alice Paul’s visage and legacy are represented wonderfully in the 22ndcoin in the First Spouse Gold Coin program. History shines through the coin, and not just due to its Gold content, and encompasses a chapter in America’s past that is often forgotten in the modern era.
