Today, October 23, 2014 at 12:00 Noon ET, the United States Mint started accepting orders for the 2014 First Spouse Bronze Medal Set. This set includes the bronze medals issued for Florence Harding, Grace Coolidge, Lou Hoover, and Eleanor Roosevelt.
Each of the medals features the design from the corresponding First Spouse Gold Coin, with the omission of certain inscriptions. The medals are struck in 90% copper and 10% zinc at the Philadelphia Mint and have a diameter of 1 and 5/16 inch.
The four medals come packaged in Mylar, inserted into a folded card containing issuance information, and placed within a custom designed outer envelope. The cost of each set is $16.95.
Each of the medals included in the set has previously been offered within a Presidential $1 Coin & First Spouse Medal Set priced at $9.95. The four medal set is a lower cost option for collectors simply seeking one example of each medal.
The First Spouse Bronze Medal Sets from 2010, 2011, and 2012 still remain available for sale at the US Mint priced at $16.95 each. The set from 2013 has sold out.
