The 2015 Lyndon B. Johnson Presidential $1 Coin and First Spouse Medal Set is now available from the U.S. Mint. It is the fourth and final Presidential $1 Coin and First Spouse Medal Set scheduled for release this year, available at a cost of $9.95. There are no stated limits on household orders or mintage at this time.
The set includes one Uncirculated Lyndon B. Johnson Presidential $1 Coin and a bronze medal bearing a portrait of Lady Bird Johnson also found on her First Spouse Gold Coins. The coin and medal are encased in a protective plastic card featuring images of the President and First Lady adapted from their official White House portraits. The back of the card offers historical information; a certificate of authenticity is also included.
The obverse of the Presidential $1 Coin was designed and engraved by Michael Gaudioso, while the reverse was fashioned by Don Everhart. The Lady Bird Johnson medal’s obverse was designed by Linda Fox and sculpted by Michael Gaudioso; the reverse was designed by Chris Costello and sculpted by Renata Gordon.
The mint has not set a mintage limit for this item, but that doesn’t mean its inventory is unlimited. Last year’s Warren Harding Presidential $1 Coin and First Spouse Medal Set has sold out, for example, and this year’s three previous releases in the series–the Truman, Eisenhower, and Kennedy sets–are all currently on back-order at the U.S. Mint’s Web site.
