The final First Spouse Gold Coin of the year is now available to order from the United States Mint. The coin honors Edith Wilson, the second wife of President Woodrow Wilson.

The latest release closely follows the previous coin of the series issued to honor Woodrow Wilson’s first wife, Ellen Wilson. Two different coins are issued since Wilson served in office with both a first and second wife.

The obverse design of the coin features a portrait of Edith Wilson designed by David Westwood and engraved by Michael Gaudioso. The surrounding inscriptions include her name, the motto “In God We Trust”, “Liberty”, the order of the Presidency “28th”, and the dates “1915-1921”.

The reverse design of the coin features a depiction of President Wilson’s hand on a cane with Mrs. Wilson’s hand resting warmly on top. This image is representative of the First Lady’s support of her husband after he had suffered a massive stroke. Inscriptions appear within the outer circumference reading “United States of America”, “E Pluribus Unum”, “$10”, and “.9999 Fine Gold”.
