The United States
Mint has announced specific release dates for two of the four
2015-W First Spouse gold $10 coins.
The Proof and Uncirculated versions of the Elizabeth
"Bess" Truman coin are to be offered by the Mint beginning
at noon Eastern Daylight Time April 16. The Proof and Uncirculated versions of the Mamie Eisenhower
First Spouse coin are to go on sale at noon EDT May 7.
The Proof and Uncirculated half-ounce, .9999 fine gold First Spouse
coins depicting Jacqueline Kennedy and Claudia "Lady Bird"
Johnson are slated to be offered sometime in June and August, respectively.
Pricing for the gold coins, both versions of which are struck at the
West Point Mint with the W Mint mark, are to be announced closer to
the specific release date of each coin. Pricing is determined by the
Mint's pricing grid for coins containing precious
metals, which calculates price changes based on changes in the spot
price of the metal.
The U.S. Mint unveiled the approved 2015 coin designs on March 16.
