Presidential $1 Coin and First Spouse Medal Set - John & Julia Tyler
The United States Mint will release the John & Julia Tyler Presidential Dollar & First Spouse Medal Set on August 25, 2009 at 12:00 Noon ET.
This set will include an uncirculated John Tyler Presidential Dollar and Julia Tyler First Spouse Bronze Medal mounted on a custom designed plastic card. The card includes portraits of the President and his spouse along with issuance information on the back of the card. The uncirculated Presidential Dollars included in previous sets have featured the "satin finish" used for Mint Set coins.
Each set is priced at $8.95 each. The US Mint has already posted the product page here, although ordering options won't be available until the start of sales.
A separate coin and medal set was previously issued for John Tyler's first spouse Letitia Tyler. This set actually became the source of an interesting packaging error. Some sets were shipped with Letitia Tyler medals included, but with Julia Tyler pictured on the plastic card.
When the Julia Tyler sets start shipping, collectors might want to double check that the proper Mrs. Tyler appears on the display card.
