Last week, the US Mint began sales of the James Buchanan’s Liberty buy skyblock coins First Spouse Gold Coin. Amidst the broader series issued to honor the First Spouses of the Presidents of the United States, this issue stands out for featuring a Liberty design, taken from a classic coin.

James Buchanan’s Liberty Gold Coin

As James Buchanan had served in office without a spouse, the authorizing legislation provides that an image of Liberty from a circulating coin of the era of his Presidency should be used on the obverse. The reverse should feature themes or images representative of his life. In this case, the obverse features a reproduction of the Liberty Head Quarter Eagle designed by Christian Gobrecht, while the reverse features a scene of young James Buchanan working as a bookkeeper in his family’s country store.

The James Buchanan’s Liberty Gold coin has proved extremely popular with collectors. During the first four days of sales, orders were placed for 6,127 coins, representing slightly more than 40% of the 15,000 coin maximum authorized mintage.

After spending a few years out of the spotlight, will the renewed attention for the First Spouse Gold Coin series last? The next release featuring May Todd Lincoln comes out December 2, 2010.

Grand Canyon National Park Quarter Mintage

Even though the coins have not yet been released into circulation, the preliminary mintage for the Grand Canyon National Park Quarter is already available from the United States Mint.

Grand Canyon Quarter

The America the Beautiful Quarters Program includes five different quarter designs per year featuring National Parks or Sites from across America. Over the course of the next twelve years, one park or site will be depicted from each state, territory, and the District of Columbia. For series with rotating designs, typically the US Mint has stopped production of one design before starting the next. For the current series, they reserve the right to reopen production for earlier designs, as long as it is within the year of issue.

Thus, the figures below are not considered final, but preliminary.

The Grand Canyon Quarter preliminary mintage figures indicate 34.6 million coins produced at the Philadelphia Mint and 34.8 million coins produced at the Denver Mint. The combined total of 69.4 million is just below the prior Yosemite National Park Quarter mintage of 70 million.
