Celebrating the First 100 Years of a Lasting Legacy
JFK -- three letters that instantly stir feelings of hope and promise, of rousing speeches and sparked imaginations, of unbelievable tragedy and lasting consequences. Combined together, these letters form the initials of a man that stood tall on the edge of a decade that would forever shape the United States and the world. And while his life ended abruptly, the work he inspired still lives on to this day. 2017 marks the 100th anniversary of John F. Kennedy's birth in Brookline, Massachusetts. And, to commemorate and celebrate the life and work of our 35th president, the Pobjoy Mint is releasing this special two-coin JFK Silver Proof and Reverse Proof set -- a GovMint.com U.S. EXCLUSIVE!
A Remarkable Life Beyond the Oval Office
John F. Kennedy's presidency is well-known to many Americans. However, JFK's stature was established well before his time in the White House. As a Navy lieutenant in 1943, Kennedy's heroics helped save the lives of 10 crewmen when their boat, PT-109, was split in half by a Japanese destroyer -- earning him the Navy and Marine Corps Medal as well as a Purple Heart. After World War II, his career led him to Congress, first as a representative and later a senator. In 1955, Kennedy even wrote the Pulitzer Prize-winning book "Profiles in Courage" while recovering from back surgery. Five years later, Kennedy was elected president, and the rest is history . . .
A Century of Influence, Immortalized in Silver!
Kennedy's time as president had a direct influence on Europe during the thick of the Cold War, so it's no surprise that the Pobjoy Mint, Europe's largest, oldest and most prestigious private mint, is behind this stunning set.
- The first coin of the set is reverse proof-minted in one ounce of 99.9% pure silver -- Using polished dies and hand-selected planchets, these reverse proofs are struck multiple times to produce frosted fields and mirror-like details.
- The second is a true proof, also minted in one ounce of 99.9% pure silver, with the same care and skill as the reverse proof -- only this time with mirror-like fields and frosted details.
- Both coins are British Virgin Islands legal tender, $1 for the reverse proof and $10 for the proof. Each also displays the profile of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II on the reverse.
- Each features the profile of John F. Kennedy in addition to dual dates of 1917 (Kennedy's birth year) and 2017 (his 100th anniversary).
- Part of a limited release of only 500 sets -- delivered to you in gorgeous proof condition, encased in a Pobjoy Mint-branded box along with a numbered certificate of authenticity!
