Drat. Hope I didn’t miss Elizabeth Monroe.

Just found out that I missed the launch date for the 5th First Spouse gold coin (the first in 2008).  It is the coin for Elizabeth Monroe, and it officially launched on Feb 28th.

It really irritates me that the US Mint doesn’t support the subscription option for these coins.  To me, the subscriptions are exactly what you want as a collector.  You decide to commit to a series, and then, automatically, when they launch new coins, they send you the coin and bill you.

I have subscriptions for a few series over the past five years, and they’ve been excellent.  No problems, no issues.

I’m still not sure I have the willpower to jump every 2 months or so to try and get one of the first spouse coins.

Just for reference, here are the 2008 First Spouse Gold Coins:
