The set included representatives of two different series issued by the US Mint starting in 2007 – the Presidential $1 Coin series and the First Spouse Gold Coin series. For the purposes of this specific set, a John Adams Presidential $1 Coin was included along with a bronze medal replica of the Abigail Adams First Spouse Gold Coin.

These coins represent the second releases of both programs which premiered with coins honoring George and Martha Washington. Both series were authorized by the Presidential Coin Act of 2005.
