This will actually mark the first numismatic product release from the Mint following a three week gap. On June 3, the 2010 Proof Gold Buffalo and Jane Pierce First Spouse Gold Coins had been released. There have been no products released during the interim.
The Presidential $1 Coin and First Spouse Medal set will include one uncirculated (satin finish) Franklin Pierce Presidential Dollar and one Jane Pierce Bronze Medal. The coin and medal will be mounted on an illustrated plastic card with issuance information on the back. The sets are priced at $11.95 each.
Previous releases for this product type remain available for sale for John & Julia Tyler, James & Sarah Polk, Zachary & Margaret Taylor, and Millard & Abigail Fillmore. The last of this product type to sell out featured John & Letitia Tyler and sold 9,695 units.
In other US Mint related news, the Proof 2010 Boy Scouts Silver Dollars went on waiting list status before the weekend. This means that the US Mint has received enough orders to reach the maximum authorized mintage of 350,000 coins across proof and uncirculated options. Orders are still accepted for placement on a waiting list. These orders will be fulfilled on a FIFO basis for any coins available due to order cancellations.
