2015 First Spouse Gold Coins – Jacqueline Kennedy

leave a comment »

unnamed-9
Born Jacqueline Lee Bouvier, Jacqueline Kennedy grew up near Washington, D.C., and was educated in private schools and studied ballet. Mrs. Kennedy brought a strong interest in the arts to the White House. Fluent in several languages, she charmed world leaders at the White House and on trips abroad. Co-founder of the White House Historical Association, she gave a televised tour following its renovation. The reverse (tails) depict the species of saucer magnolia Mrs. Kennedy chose to be planted in a White House garden and near the eternal flame at her husband’s grave in Arlington National Cemetery. The petals stretch across the globe, its tips connecting the points of some of her most notable diplomatic visits.

These Presidential $1 Coins – with circulating finishes minted at the U.S. Mint at Denver and Philadelphia – have never been placed into circulation. Featuring edge-incused inscriptions of the year, “E PLURIBUS UNUM” and the mint mark, the Kennedy $1 coin presents a new, eye-catching likeness of President Kennedy on the obverse (heads) and has a common reverse (tails) design featuring a dramatic perspective of the Statue of Liberty.

Look for the 2015 Coin and Chronicles Set – Harry S. Truman on June 30th! This unique keepsake will feature a Presidential $1 Reverse Proof Coin—only available as a part of this set—along with a silver presidential medal, stamp and companion informational booklet. They are all displayed in a rich red folder covered in a soft-touch material with a handsome textured look that makes an excellent gift.

And did you know that Truman, a World War I veteran, led the effort to establish a single day of commemoration for citizens to come together and thank our military members for their service? Armed Forces Day, May 16, was created to celebrate the unification of all the branches of the military under the Department of Defense.
