The United States Mint launched John Quincy Adam $1 coins into circulation yesterday, May 15. The dollar coin marks the sixth released since the Presidential $1 Coin Program began in 2007, and the second for this year.
United States Mint Acting Deputy Director Dan Shaver commented,
"$1 coins are great for use in everyday transactions, and the John Quincy Adams Presidential $1 Coin is also an educational tool. As Americans use the coin in commerce, we hope it prompts them to learn about this President's contributions to our great Nation."
John Quincy Adam's life was one of distinction and commitment to public service.
