Andrew Jackson's Liberty First Spouse Gold Coin
The 2008 Andrew Jackson's Liberty Gold Coin was the seventh release of the First Spouse Gold Coin Program. Rather than depicting a First Lady, this coin features an image of Liberty taken from a circulating coin. This is because Andrew Jackson did not have a spouse while in office.
The obverse of the coin, originally designed by John Reich, was used on the Capped Bust Half Dollar with Lettered Edge which was minted from 1807 to 1836. The reverse of the coin, designed by Justin Kunz and sculpted by Don Everhart, depicts Andrew Jackson the war hero "Old Hickory" as he led American troops against the Brisith in teh Battle of New Orleans.
Coins were released on August 28, 2008 and limited to a maximum authorized mintage of 40,000. The coins were available from the US Mint for approximately one year. A combined 12,560 pieces were sold during this time.
