Earlier today, Dec. 10, 2013, sales kicked off for the fourth of five 2013-dated Presidential $1 Coin & First Spouse Medal Sets from the United States Mint. This one honors Woodrow Wilson and his first wife Ellen, the 28th President and First Lady of the United States.
An uncirculated 2013-P Woodrow Wilson Presidential $1 Coin and an Ellen Wilson bronze medal, which bears the likeness of her just released First Spouse Gold Coins, are mounted on a decorative card with portraits of the two and their signatures.
2013-W $10 Ellen Wilson First Spouse Gold Coins are available in uncirculated and proof quality, and are struck in one-half ounce of 24-karat gold. At this time, the uncirculated coin is priced at $795.00 and the proof coin is priced at $815.00. Prices may vary weekly as the gold market moves up or down
Woodrow Wilson Presidential dollars became available when they were released in rolls, bags and boxes on Oct. 17, 2013. These products are sold for prices ranging from $32.95 to $550.95.
Price, Ordering, Free Shipping, and Second Wilson Set
Priced at $9.95, collectors who are interested in placing an order for the Woodrow Wilson Presidential $1 Coin & Ellen Wilson Medal Set may do so by going to the United States Mint’s website at www.usmint.gov. The online product page for all the sets is located here. Orders may also be placed calling 1-800-USA-MINT (872-6468). There are no household or mintage limits for this product.
Normally, there is a U.S. domestic fee of $4.95 for standard shipping. Collectors can eliminate this charge by ordering online which takes advantage of the Mint’s free shipping promotion that lasts until 5 p.m. ET on Friday, Dec. 13, 2013.
Because Ellen died when Woodrow Wilson was in office and he later married Edith Bolling while still President, there will be another set featuring Woodrow and Edith. It will go on sale Dec. 19.
In past years, the United States Mint would offer First Spouse bronze medals by themselves, but this option was discontinued in 2011. Since then, Presidential $1 Coin & First Spouse Medal Sets have been a main source for acquiring the bronze medals that honor our First Ladies of the past.
Later this month, on Dec. 16, the U.S. Mint will be releasing a product that has all five bronze medals. The 2013 First Spouse Bronze Medal Set will be available for $16.95.
