In order to maintain continuity, the First Spouse Series included designs even for those presidents who were not married while in office. Rather than featuring a spouse, these coins featured a depiction of Lady Liberty inspired by classic American coin designs. In this listing, we present Martin Van Buren along with the Seated Liberty design issued from 1837-1891. Provident Metals now has 2008 Proof US Mint First Spouse Van Buren’s Liberty 1/2 oz Gold Coins available to purchase online.
When you order 2008 US Mint First Spouse Van Buren’s Liberty 1/2 oz Gold Coins from Provident Metals, they will arrive to you with protective plastic slabs. These slabs include a label above the coin featuring the coins perfect grade of Proof 70. These coins were originally struck at the U.S. Mint and are considered legal tender by the federal government.
On the obverse of 2008 Proof US Mint First Spouse Van Buren’s Liberty 1/2 oz Gold Coins, there is a depiction of Seated Liberty. Here, Liberty holds a stick with a Phrygian cap hanging from it. There are inscriptions as well that read 8th PRESIDENCY, 1837-1841, IN GOD WE TRUST, 2008.
The reverse side of these Proof US Mint First Spouse Van Buren’s Liberty 1/2 oz Gold Coins features a young Martin Van Buren. In this idyllic scene, the future president sits against a tree while reading a book. You will see inscriptions also reading UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, E PLURIBUS UNUM, $10, 1/2 OZ .9999 FINE GOLD.
The First Spouse Series began in 2007 following the authorization of Public Law 109-145. The series was an instant success, with the first three featuring Martha Washington, Abigail Adams, and a Liberty portrait for the widower Thomas Jefferson. The coins have been issued in sequential order along with the $1 Presidential Dollar from the United States Mint.
