A Deaf $10.00 USA Gold Coin (pictures below)

The United States Mint will be minting and releasing a $10.00
USA Gold Coin, that is Deaf. On one side of the coin is U-S-A
fingerspelling that honors Grace Coolidge, the wife of President
Calvin Coolidge,1923-1929. His wife advocated the needs of
the deaf.The U-S-A fingerspelling is interesting because
she taught at Clarke School for the Deaf which never permitted
sign language, nor of fingerspelling! That was before she
married Calvin. The minting will be in three categories –
gold coin in proof condition; gold coin in uncirculated
condition and bronze medal. The first two categories will have
monetary value while the bronze category doesn’t.
