The United States Mint has released the design candidate images for the 2016 Nancy Reagan First Spouse Gold Coin. This should represent the final release of the series honoring the former First Spouses of the United States of America.
The design candidates for the Nancy Reagan First Spouse Gold Coin join other previously released design candidates for other 2016 First Spouse Gold Coins. Design candidates for the Ronald Reagan Presidential Dollar can be seen here.
At the present time, Nancy Reagan is still living at the age of 93. When the coins are issued, she may join a small group of individuals who have been portrayed on United States coinage while living. Others have included Alabama Governor T.E. Kilby on the 1921 Alabama Centennial Half Dollar, President Calvin Coolidge on the 1926 Sesquicentennial Half Dollar, Senator Carter Glass on the 1936 Lynchburg Half Dollar, Senator Joseph Robinson on the 1937 Robinson-Arkansas Half Dollar, and Eunice Shriver Kennedy on the 1995 Special Olympics Silver Dollar.
