Betty Ford served as the First Lady of the United States from 1974 to 1977, taking on the role when her husband, Gerald Ford, assumed the presidency following the Watergate scandal. Throughout her time as First Lady, she gained recognition for her vocal support of women’s rights issues, wholeheartedly championing the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA) and advocating for women’s equality in various spheres of life.


On the obverse of the 2016-W First Spouse Betty Ford 1/2 oz Gold Coins, you’ll find a graceful left-profile relief of the former First Lady, along with her name and the dates of her husband’s presidency.


The reverse design of the 2016-W US Mint First Spouse Betty For Gold Coin features an exquisite image of a woman gracefully ascending a staircase, symbolizing Mrs. Ford’s relentless efforts to advance women’s rights and opportunities in the United States.


Betty Ford’s advocacy extended to raising awareness about breast cancer. In 1974, shortly after becoming First Lady, she was diagnosed with breast cancer. Her openness about her diagnosis and mastectomy helped destigmatize the disease and encouraged many women to seek early detection and treatment.


These stunning 2016-W US Mint First Spouse Betty Ford 1/2 oz Gold Coins come individually packaged, accompanied by a presentation box and a Certificate of Authenticity from the United States Mint.
