2015 Coin and Chronicles set - NGC PF69 Reverse Proof
2015 marks the beginning of these special sets that include a reverse proof example of the Kennedy presidential dollar coin. This is the ONLY way these special coins were released! This set also comes with a silver copy of Kennedy's 1961 inaugural medal, both housed in NGC certified plastic holders with matching 69 grades.
John F. Kennedy
John F. Kennedy was our 35th president, and the youngest to be elected into office. While president, Kennedy represented the young, free spirit of the nation, and was beloved by the people of a nation as he and his beautiful wife raised a family in the White House.
Kennedy promised to land a man on the moon and bring him home safely within the decade. While this was done successfully, unfortunately Kennedy would not be alive to see the moon landing in July of 1969. Possibly out of controversy from the Bay of Pigs invasion of Cuba, or possible as a result of the Cuban Missile Crisis, both of which happened early in Kennedy's presidency, he was assassinated in a motorcade in Dallas, Texas, on the morning of November 22, 1963, while on his way to a speech.
This tragic event gripped the nation in mourning for a period of months, and led to a years-long investigation to figure out exactly what happened. The assassin, Lee Harvey Oswald, was killed shortly after the crime, thus was never questioned as to why he killed the president. To this day controversy surrounds the nature and outcome of this horrific event.
All of these things lead to John F. Kennedy being one of the most remembered presidents in the nation's history. So much so that the circulating half dollar of the United States bears his portrait.
Coin and Chronicle set popularity
The nature of the Coin and Chronicle sets places them at the forefront of collector attention, with a coin from a popular and common series only being issued in this set as a very limited edition - the reverse proof presidential dollar. Both the Truman and Eisenhower sets were sold out at the mint within 30 minutes of their opening bell, which is a record.
The Original Mint Packaging will be included with this item.
