• The U.S. Mint’s Presidential Dollars series reached its second year in 2008.

• Presidential Dollars are issued in the order in which the Presidents served, and at the rate of four per year.

• This set features the sixth Presidential Dollar overall – and the second of 2008.

• It features John Quincy Adams, the sixth President.

• The coins celebrate each non-living U.S. President on a unique golden Dollar coin.

• Each coin is a legal tender Dollar coin struck at the U.S. Mint.

• Each coin is issued in a limited edition of only about three months before production starts on the next            coin.

John Quincy Adams was the first President whose father – John Adams – previously served as President.

In the 1824 Presidential election, Adams came second to Andrew Jackson.  However, Jackson failed to win a majority of the electoral votes, and the U.S. House of Representatives selected Adams as the winner of the election. 

• The coin is in Brilliant Uncirculated condition and is richly layered in pure 24 karat gold.

• The gold layering is done privately, as the U.S. Mint does not have the capacity to layer coins.

• Just a tiny fraction of all Presidential Dollars will be layered in gold for this collection.

• In addition to the coin, the set includes a historic U.S. stamp.

Date of Issue:  December 7, 1963, to honor John James Audubon, whose first volume of Birds of   America was first printed during Adams’ Presidency

•“Always vote for principle, though you may vote alone, and you may cherish the sweetest reflection that your vote is never lost” – John Quincy Adams

• The set comes in a custom display wallet with details of J.Q.Adams’s life, as well as a Certificate of Authenticity.

• There is one coin and one stamp in the collection.  The coin is composed of .770 copper, .070 manganese, and .040 nickel, then layered in pure 24 karat gold.
