Today, August 19, 2014, the United States Mint began sales of the Presidential $1 Coin & First Spouse Medal Set for the Presidency of Warren G. Harding.
Each set includes one uncirculated 2014 Warren G. Harding Presidential Dollar and one Florence Harding First Spouse Bronze Medal. The coin and medal are mounted on a plastic card which includes portraits of the President and First Lady on the front and issuance information on the back.
The sets are priced at $9.95 each. There are no stated product limits or ordering limits.
This set represents the first availability of the Florence Harding Bronze Medal, which carries the same design as the one-half ounce 24 karat gold coin. For the initial years of the First Spouse Gold Coin Program, the Mint had offered the bronze medals individually coinciding with the release of the gold coins. Starting in 2012, the Mint stopped selling the medals individually. Currently, the medals are only available within the Presidential $1 Coin & First Spouse Medal Sets and the annual four or five medal set issued near the end of each year.
Previously released Presidential $1 Coin & First Spouse Bronze Medal Sets going back to Millard Fillmore still remain available for sale, with the exception of Abraham Lincoln which has sold out. Sales for the sets have shown a diminishing pattern over time. The sets from last year have last reported sales ranging from a high of 4,303 for Theodore Roosevelt to a low of 3,101 for the Woodrow & Ellen Wilson set.
