Julia Tyler First Spouse Gold Coin
The 2009 Julia Tyler Gold Coin represents a popular issue of the 24 karat gold series. A combination of factors led to low sales and a correspondingly low mintage.
Within the series, the Julia Tyler coin also marked the first time that two spouses were honored for a single president. Julia Tyler became the second wife of President James Tyler while he was in office.
The obverse of the coin features a portrait of Julia Tyler. The reverse of the coin displays a scene of Julia Tyler and her husband dancing at a White House Ball. She is credited with introducing the Polka at a White House event, leading to a national craze. The obverse and reverse were both designed by Joel Iskowitz and sculpted by Don Everhart.
