First Spouse Buyers Need Cash
October 18, 2013

First Spouse gold coins will be offered by the U.S. Mint this year even later on the seasonal calendar than was done last year. Once again striking problems caused the delay.

The first 2013 design for Ida McKinley will be put on sale Nov. 14. The second design for Edith Roosevelt will follow a week later on Nov. 21 and the third design for Helen Taft is slated for Dec. 2.

The final two honoring the wives of President Woodrow Wilson have not yet been scheduled.

Of course, the good news is that so few people have been buying these coins that the wait has not been noticed by the great mass of the numismatic hobby.
