John Adams was the second President of the United States, the first to be a father of a future president, and the first president to occupy the White House. Adams was a career diplomat serving in France and Holland during the Revolutionary War. On his return to the new country, he became the first Vice President of the United States.
Adams will be featured on the second coin in the Presidential Dollar program. His coin is scheduled to be released in May. In the mean time, the US Mint is preparing for the release of this new coin. If you want to read about the creating of this coin, this article from the Patriot Ledger of Quincy, Massachusetts has a very good article.
