The Uncirculated version of one of the First Spouse gold $10 coins issued in conjunction with the Presidential dollar honoring Woodrow Wilson will likely record the lowest mintage for the series, but for which “First” Spouse?

As of May 25, sales for the Uncirculated 2013-W Edith Wilson gold $10 coin, honoring President Wilson’s second wife, reached a paltry 1,428 coins.

However, that’s just 68 fewer coins than the 1,488 pieces recorded sold by the U.S. Mint of the Uncirculated 2013-W Ellen Wilson gold coin, honoring President Wilson’s first wife.

Sales of only one of the 2013-W First Spouse gold coins have surpassed the 2,500-coin mark.

The 2013 First Spouse gold coins honor Ida McKinley, Edith Roosevelt, and Helen Taft, in addition to Ellen Wilson and Edith Wilson.

The U.S. Mint is likely to continue selling the 2013-W coins even after release of the 2014-W coins, for which release dates have not yet been announced.

The 2014 issues are to honor Florence Harding, Grace Coolidge, Lou Hoover, and Eleanor Roosevelt.

As of May 25, sales of the 2013 First Spouse coin are:

➤ Ida McKinley — 2,494 Proof, 1,728 Uncirculated.

➤ Edith Roosevelt — 2,507 Proof, 1,708 Uncirculated.
