General Coin Information

The 2013 Edith Wilson First Spouse Gold Coin will be issued as the last of five 2013-dated strikes of the US Mint's First Spouse Gold Coin Program. All coins in this series are struck from one-half ounce of .9999 fine gold to either proof or uncirculated condition.

Shown on both the obverse and reverse of this particular release will be imagery emblematic of Edith Wilson, wife of Woodrow Wilson, the 28th President of the United States. The obverse will contain a portrait of the former First Lady with the reverse showcasing a scene from her life.

This coin is actually the second of the series to be issued in association with President Wilson. His first wife, Ellen, died while he was in office. He then married Edith. Thus, both spouses are honored on separate coins of the program.

Edith married Woodrow Wilson, 28th US President, on December 18, 1915. Her social duties were somewhat limited owing to the fact that the nation was embroiled in World War I. Then, in 1919, Woodrow suffered a stroke. To limit his activity, Edith started to screen all matters before they were presented to the President leading many to call her "the first woman to run the government."

Obverse Design

On the obverse of the coin is a portrait of Edith Wilson. Surrounding the portrait are the inscriptions of EDITH WILSON, IN GOD WE TRUST, LIBERTY, 2013, 28TH and 1915-1921.

Reverse Design

The reverse showcases a scene from the life of Edith. It is surrounded by the inscriptions of "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA", "E PLURIBUS UNUM", "$10", "1/2 OZ.", and ".9999 PURE GOLD.
