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.
