For the obverse of 2016-W 1/2 oz Proof US Mint First Spouse Gold Coins a portrait of Betty Ford is found. Here, the former First Lady is depicted in left-profile relief, a warm smile on her face. The design is credited to artist Barbara Fox.


For the reverse of 2016-W 1/2 oz Proof US Mint Betty Ford Gold Coins, we find a young woman ascending a spiral staircase. This symbolic design from Chris Costello reminds us of the ongoing push for social, political, and personal progress for all.


Betty Ford served as First Lady alongside her husband President Gerald Ford from 1974-1977. Prior to that, she was second lady while her husband was Vice President during the final year of Richard Nixons administration. Throughout her life, Betty was an advocate for womens rights, breast cancer awareness, and addiction treatment. She remains one of the most beloved First Ladies in history.
