The last United States Mint issued 2012 Presidential $1 Coin & First Spouse Medal Set debuted Thursday, Dec. 20. This one is the second set recognizing Grover and Frances Cleveland, sporting the second term Presidential $1 Coin of Grover and the second term bronze medal of Frances.
The Presidential $1 Coin is an uncirculated version of the Grover Cleveland $1 coins released on November 15, 2012 in bags, rolls and boxes. The 1 5/16-inch bronze medal has the same obverse and reverse designs as the 24-karat Frances Cleveland First Spouse Gold Coins that also debuted Thursday, Dec. 20, 2012.
A "durable plastic card" holds the coin and medal, as shown in the image above. This is the same card used for the first term set launched on Nov. 20, 2012. Its front has portraits and signatures of Frances and Grover Cleveland. Printed on the back is product information.
