General Coin Information

The Letitia Tyler First Spouse Gold Coin in proof condition, released by the United States Mint on July 2, 2009, is the 10th in a series of 24 carat gold coins designed as a tribute to the past first spouses of the United States. This series of coins are offered as a companion to the Presidential $1 coins that the Mint offers.

Letitia Tyler suffered a stroke a few years before her husband John assumed the Presidency. As such, her health prevented her from assuming the ceremonial duties required of a president's wife. This did not stop her from running the household, but she only made one official public appearance, which was at the wedding of her daughter.

A second stroke further affected Letitia's health in 1842, and she passed away peacefully on September 10th of that year at the age of 51. Her death would be the first time a president's wife died while he was still in office.

Also available is the Letitia Tyler Coin uncirculated version.
