The United States Mint on Thursday launched the Zachary and Margaret Taylor Presidential $1 Dollar Coin & First Spouse Medal Set for a price of $8.95, plus shipping and handling.
Marking the fifth and final issues this year and the thirteenth since the product line began in 2007, the set includes an uncirculated Zachary Taylor Presidential $1 Coin and a 1/15 inch bronze medal likeness of the Margaret Taylor First Spouse Gold Coin.
The two are mounted within an attractive "durable plastic card enhanced with beautiful representations of the President and first spouse’s portraits, with issuance information on the back."
US Mint sales figures for this year’s sets, as illustrated in the table below, are stronger than individual First Spouse Gold Coins, but less than bags and rolls of the Presidential Dollars.
