Check the edge. It should have the date.

Date is on the edge, John Quincy Adams dollars were made in 2008.

And just as an fyi, it is not gold. It is copper with manganese brass cladding, so just gold-colored.

Maybe the date and stuff has worn off the edge though.
Checking the edge really isn't a sure fire way to find out.
If ti's spent some time vending, it will be obliterated.

As everybody else has said, the edge.

If you can't see it there, and sometimes it is difficult to read, then it may have been worn off.
It is also technically possible that it was left off. That is a known variety for Washington, Adams, and Tyler and others.

@Greasy Fingers,
You ARE referring to "POSITION A" and "POSITION B".
Here is what PCGS is doing when it comes to slabbing themhttps://www.PCGS.com/news/PCGS-to-r...ntial-dollar
