    It’s the only presidential spouse gold coin/medal that made sense to me to purchase. I bought it from the mint when it first came out. I always thought the classic liberty design would make it a winner. I have no idea if it is now going for a premium over the other spouse medals or not though, but to me it should sooner or later

    All coins (copper and silver) bore the same obverse. Robert Scot, Chief Engraver of the U.S. Mint, 1793–1823, transformed a portrait of a society lady by Gilbert Stuart into a rather buxom Ms. Liberty. Some accounts identify the woman as Philadelphia socialite Ann Willing Bingham. She remained essentially unchanged for several years with the exception of an extra curl added to her flowing locks in 1798.

    I realize this is what is currently stated from many sources on the internet.

    However, "Gilbert Stuart had nothing to do with the Draped Bust design."

    Quote from Harry Salyards advertising his new book, Eagle Poised on a Bank of Clouds: The United States Silver Dollars of 1795-1798

    Salyards has 37 pages to debunk the myth. Excellent fact-based research.

    Thanks, ill look into that. I didnt deep dive, just found a few sources with similar info and then moved onto other coins. Ill check out Salyards.

    The draped bust is one of the most underrated designs of US Coinage. It’s among the best designs before there was a golden age of coinage.
