The first release in 2015, the Bess Truman First Spouse Gold Coin features a portrait of Bess Truman. From the fifth grade through high school, she was a classmate of Harry Truman, and they married in 1919. The reverse (tails) features a locomotive wheel moving along railroad tracks, representing Mrs. Truman’s support for her husband on his 1948 whistle-stop campaign trip for re-election as president.  Buy It Now!
