Striking John Adams Design
This new medal gets its designs from the bronze presidential medal that the US Mint has previously produced. A right-side portrait of John Adams, the second President of the United States is on the obverse. He is depicted as a powerful figure with a stern countenance. His name and title, "JOHN ADAMS PRESIDENT OF THE U. S.," are inscribed along the rim. Joining them is the year of his inauguration, "A. D. 1797."
The reverse bears a dual design. One consists of a crossed tomahawk and peace pipe. The other is of two hands shaking. One wrist has a cuff on which there are three stripes with buttons, and each button bears an American eagle. The other wrist is bare. The only inscription on this side reads, "PEACE AND FRIENDSHIP."

In 2016, the First Spouse and Presidential Dollar coin series, which both began in 2007, ended with coins for President Ronald Reagan and Nancy Reagan, that changes in 2020.
There are three different places where a discussion of presidents and U.S. coinage could start: with George Washington and Lady Liberty, with Thomas Jefferson and William McKinley, or with Abraham Lincoln. As we will see, a lot depends on what “circulating” means and what a “commemorative” is, and deciding what actually counts!
