John Quincy Adams sat for Moritz Fürst on May 30 and June 6, 1824; the medalist made a profile drawing on paper. Criticism of the likeness, however, delayed the creation of the medal until the following year.
John Quincy Adams posó para Moritz Fürst el 30 de mayo y el 6 de junio de 1824, y el medallista captó su perfil en un dibujo sobre papel. Sin embargo, la creación de la medalla se demoró hasta el año siguiente debido a cierta inconformidad con el parecido.
