Harrison Presidential $1 Coin & First Spouse Medal SetThe US Mint on Tuesday launched the William Henry Harrison Presidential $1 Coin & First Spouse Medal Set for $8.95, plus shipping and handling. The set is the first for 2009 and the ninth released in a series that honors both former Presidents and First Ladies.

The set includes an uncirculated dollar featuring Harrison and a bronze medal bearing a likeness to the Anna Harrison First Spouse Gold Coin.

The obverse or heads side of the coin, designed and sculpted by Joseph Menna., bears an image of William Henry Harrison with the inscriptions "William Henry Harrison", "In God We Trust", "9th President" and "1841."

The obverse of the 1 5/16 inch bronze medal features the portrait of Anna Harrison. It was designed by Donna Weaver and sculpted by Joseph Menna. The reverse shows Anna sharing her passion for teaching students. It was designed by Thomas Cleveland and sculpted by Charles Vicker.

The coin and medal are within a plastic card (shown above) that the Mint describes as:

"Enhanced with beautiful representations of the President and first spouse’s portraits, with issuance."

The set is available on the Mint page:
