The US Mint has just released pricing and ordering information for the upcoming Louisa Adams First Spouse Coins.
As a brief recap, the Louisa Adams coin is the sixth coin in the First Spouse Gold series, and the second release for 2008. The coins contain one-half ounce of 24 karat gold and are available in proof and uncirculated versions. As previously posted, the coins will go on sale on May 29, 2008 at 12:00 Noon ET.
The newly released information includes pricing for the coins and ordering limits. The proof version of the coin is priced at $619.95 and the uncirculated version of the coin is priced at $599.95.
The Mint is placing an ordering limit of one coin per household for at least the first week of release. Total production of the coin will be limited to 40,000, with the amount divided between proof and uncirculated coins based on demand.
The price levels match those of the previous coin in the series honoring Elizabeth Monroe. However, the final coin from 2007 honoring Dolley Madison is still available at the Mint at the lower issue prices of $529.95 and $509.95.
