Today, July 5, the U.S. Mint introduced its last Presidential $1 Coin & First Spouse Medal Set. This newest product honors Ronald Reagan, the 40th President of the United States, and former First Lady Nancy Reagan.
Sets include a Ronald Reagan dollar and a bronze medal featuring Mrs. Reagan. Both are presented in a protective plastic card that offers portraits of the two, their facsimile signatures, historical information, and a certificate of authenticity.
The dollar is in uncirculated quality. Uncirculated coins are struck on special presses using greater force than circulating coins, producing a sharper and more detailed image. On Friday, the U.S. Mint released circulating quality Reagan dollars in rolls, bags and boxes at prices ranging from $32.95 to $275.95.
The bronze medal bears a likeness of the Nancy Reagan First Spouse Gold Coins that also went on sale Friday. Available in collector qualities of proof and uncirculated, each $10 gold piece is produced at the U.S. Mint facility in West Point from 1/2-ounce of .9999 fine gold. The U.S. Mint is now selling the proof for $865 and the uncirculated coin for $845.
