Why purchase this First Day of Issue 1 oz. Silver John Quincy Adams Presidential Medal?
In the colonial period of American history, when alliances were formed between the U.S. government and Native American nations, Peace Medals were offered to Native American Chiefs to commemorate the friendship. This John Quincy Adams Presidential Medal struck from 1 Troy oz. of .999 fine silver replicates the medals distributed during his service as the sixth U.S. President (1825-1829).
Distinctive Original 1825 Medal Design
The obverse depicts Mint engraver Moritz Furst's right facing image of Adams dressed in a formal coat and sash, encircled by the inscription "JOHN QUINCY ADAMS PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES 1825."
As a demonstration of the friendship between the Native American nations and the U.S. government, a handshake is illustrated on the reverse beneath a crossed peace pipe and tomahawk. The inscription "PEACE AND FRIENDSHIP" is integrated into the design by John Reich.

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!
