Frances Cleveland (Second Term) First Spouse Gold Coin

General Coin Information

The 2012 Frances Cleveland (Second Term) First Spouse Gold Coin will be released by the US Mint as the final of four First Spouse Gold Coins to appear in 2012. The strike will honor the second term of Frances Cleveland as first spouse of the United States by showcasing a portrait of her on the obverse and a reverse featuring a scene from her life.

This release will mark the second time Frances Cleveland was honored on a First Spouse Gold Coin with the first released earlier in 2012 to acknowledge her first term. That is because her husband is the only former US President to have served two non-consecutive terms. It also means that Frances Cleveland is the only spouse who will be honored by two different strikes as part of the First Spouse Gold Coin series.

While her husband's term was marked with several political storms, Frances weathered them well as official hostess of the White House. Part of her charm may have been her youth as she was the youngest First Lady (and still is) in the history of the nation after marrying Grover Cleveland at the age of 21 during his first term as US President.

The US Mint will release two different versions of the Frances Cleveland Coin - the Frances Cleveland (Second Term) First Spouse Gold Proof Coin and the Frances Cleveland (Second Term) First Spouse Gold Uncirculated Coin. The two coins will be identical except for their finishes.

Obverse Design

The obverse of the Frances Cleveland Coin will contain a portrait of the former First Lady. Also shown on the obverse will be the inscriptions of "FRANCES CLEVELAND," "IN GOD WE TRUST," "2012," "24TH" and 1893-1897.

Reverse Design

The reverse of the coin will contain an image showcasing a scene from the life of Frances. Also include will be the inscriptions of "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA", "E PLURIBUS UNUM", "$10", "1/2 OZ.", and ".9999 PURE GOLD.
