  The 2014 Grace Coolidge First Spouse Gold Coin was first made available for sale from the United States Mint on July 17, 2014. The release date came just one week after the previous release within the series.

  The obverse design of the Grace Coolidge First Spouse Coin features a portrait designed by Joel Iskowitz and engraved by Phebe Hemphill. The inscriptions include “Grace Coolidge”, the motto “In God We Trust”, “Liberty”, the date and mint mark “2014 W”, the order of the Presidency “30th”, and the dates served “1923-1929″.

  Grace Coolidge was born January 3, 1879, in Burlington, Vermont.  She graduated from the University of Vermont in 1902 and went on to teach at a well-known school for the deaf and hard-of-hearing and serve on its Board of Trustees. As First Lady during the Presidency of Calvin Coolidge, she promoted education for the deaf and drew attention to the needs of the disabled. A popular First Lady, Mrs. Coolidge, used her celebrity to promote many groups including leadership and community service activities for boys and girls.  She supported wounded veterans and other disabled people, and humanitarian and disaster relief.  Mrs. Coolidge kept a number of pets at the White House, including a raccoon (Rebecca) who was sent to the First Family to be eaten as a holiday dinner. She brought Rebecca to events such as the White House Easter Egg Roll.  Mrs. Coolidge’s White House portrait is of her and her beloved white collie, Rob Roy. She loved baseball.

  The reverse of the coin was designed by Frank Morris and engraved by Jim Licaretz and features an image of three hands finger-spelling the letters USA in American Sign Language against the backdrop of the White House. The surrounding inscriptions include “United States of America”, the motto “E Pluribus Unum”, the denomination “$10″, and the precious metal weight and content “1/2 oz. .9999 Fine Gold”.

  A maximum mintage of 10,000 pieces was established for the release across proof and uncirculated versions. Sales opened with no established household ordering limits. The initial price for the coins was $865 for the proof version and $845 for the uncirculated version, based on an average market price of gold within the $1,300 to $1,349.99 range. Pricing was subject to potential weekly adjustment following fluctuations in the market price of gold.
