General Coin Information

The fourth strike to be issued in 2013 as part of the US Mint's First Spouse Gold Coin Program will be the 2013 Ellen Wilson First Spouse Gold Coin. Both the obverse and reverse of the coin contain designs emblematic of Ellen Wilson, wife of Woodrow Wilson, the 28th President of the United States.

Like all other strikes of this series, the Ellen Wilson Coin is struck from 1/2 ounce of .9999 fine gold. The coin will be issued in both proof and uncirculated condition.

This strike marks a bit of an anomaly for the series. Ellen was the first wife of Woodrow while he was President. She died while he was still in office and Woodrow later married another woman. Accordingly, both spouses are honored in this series and appear on separate coins.

Ellen spent much of her time while in the White House in a third floor art studio she had set up. Many paintings that she created were sold for charity. Her health started to suffer from Bright's disease and she died in the White House on August 6, 1914.

Obverse Design

A portrait of Ellen Wilson graces the obverse of the gold coin. Surrounding the portrait are the inscriptions of ELLEN WILSON, IN GOD WE TRUST, LIBERTY, 2013, 28TH and 1913-1914.

Reverse Design

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