Today, April 29, 2015, the United States Mint began accepting orders for the Presidential $1 Coin & First Spouse Medal Set featuring Harry S. Truman and Bess Truman.
Each set contains an uncirculated 2015 Harry S. Truman Presidential Dollar and the Bess Truman First Spouse Bronze Medal. The coin and medal are mounted on a plastic card containing images of the President and First Lady with their names and facsimile signatures. The back of the card includes historical information information as well as information about the coin and bronze medal.
The sets are priced at $9.95 each. This price level is unchanged from the prior year. There are no stated product limits or household ordering limits in place.
This represents the first availability of the Bess Truman First Spouse Bronze Medal. The medal will also be included within a four medal set issued near the end of the year.
While this product line typically sees low sales, interest may be reignited following the early apparent sell outs of the prior two year’s releases. (The US Mint’s website lists these as “unavailable” but they have been this way for several months.)
