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.
