Set Description
To display coins, some tokens and medals that represent John F. Kennedy and his family.

As President, he made a major impression to our country. His work such as getting our country out of a recession, preventing a nuclear war, creating the Peace Corp and signing the Equal Pay Act were many of the things he did for this country.

He also left a great impression in Europe and other places around the world. Because of this, I will include what other countries have done to pay tribute to this President, as well as his family. Many of these world coins represent his visit to Europe, celebrated his birth, his service to our country and sadly the anniversary of his death.

Set Goals
Collect any and all items (coins, tokens and medals) that have John Kennedy, Jaqueline Kennedy and family (Robert Kennedy, JFK Jr., etc) from the USA and all over the world.

Currently I am using what I call "The Bible" of Kennedy coins, tokens and medals. The book is called "The Kennedy World in Medallic Art". Copyrighted in 2014, it helps me target items and narrows where I search..

View Coin Gold JFK UNITED STATES 50C 1964-2014 W GOLD HIGH RELIEF NGC PF 70 ULTRA CAMEO It's 2014..... rumor had said a gold half dollar coin was coming out.... and it did!

For Kennedy fans this is a very nice gold proof coin!!! It is on the top of my other Kennedy coins and sits next to my Jaqueline Kennedy gold proof coin.

Finally traded in my PF69 for this handsome PF70!!

The price listed for the 69 or 70 is just too low!! At the current price, the melting amount would be $1455 as of this writing!

This coin shouldn't go below spot price at any rating! NGC needs to make gold price values for these type of coins dynamic!!

The amount minted is less than 70,000 and the coin is 3/4 oz of fine gold!
View Coin Gold 1st Lady UNITED STATES G$10 2015 W JACQUELINE KENNEDY FIRST DAY OF ISSUE NGC PF 70 ULTRA CAMEO What's the sense of having a Presidential gold coin without a First Lady?

This coin that was already rated a PF70 and I wanted one to go along with my Kennedy gold coin that was also rated.

Only 30,000 minted!
View Coin First Kennedy 1/2 Dollar (Silver) UNITED STATES 50C 1964 NGC PF 68 CAMEO I'm actually happy to find such a nice proof coin like this in the final year of silver!

The coin was designed to commemorate a President that kept us from nuclear war. His death in 1963 was a tragedy to many around the world.

This coin was a starting tribute to his legacy and the only silver coin in its year! It wouldn't be until 1992 that you can get this coin in silver.
View Coin Clad Kennedy 1/2 Dollar UNITED STATES 50C 1966 SMS NGC MS 68 This coin was a recent purchase to help me fill my current type set of coins. Technically not a proof, but more a SMS (Special Mint Set). 1965 to 1967 the SMS coins were minted for this coin.
View Coin Clad Kennedy Proof Bicentennial UNITED STATES 50C 1776-1976 S CLAD PCGS PF 69 UC 200 years our country came to be and everyone was celebrating it.

All though this is a proof coin, I could remember getting a roll of this coins from my mom fresh from her bank she worked at. All us kids got a roll, but we were too young to understand that keeping these coins would be worth something if I didn't open the roll.

But what do you expect from a pre-teen like me that sees money rather than "collectable" if he kept it in the roll.

I see these circulated coins on occasion.... worn.... beaten..... and kids today may ask why they were different.

This coin is a recent addition in 2019. I have a silver version of this one as well.
View Coin Silver Kennedy Proof Bicentennial UNITED STATES 50C 1776-1976 S SILVER NGC PF 69 CAMEO I have an original bicentennial silver proof set, but I didn't want to break it apart. So I found this coin on eBay to fill the void.

Seeing this coin minted in silver was actually the best thing the mint did for this year.

Last time a Kennedy half dollar was in silver was in 1964 as a regular circulated coin. Here we have a proof coin in our country's 200 year anniversary of independence!!
View Coin Return of Silver to the Kennedy 50C piece. UNITED STATES 50C 1992 S SILVER NGC PF 70 ULTRA CAMEO I've been collecting silver proof sets since they returned in 1992. Not wanting to break original sets, I purchased this one to fill the void.

Seeing this coin in Silver as a proof actually put a smile on my face.
View Coin 50th Anniversary 50C High Relief DPL Enhanced UNITED STATES 50C 2014 S SILVER HIGH RELIEF NGC SP 70 DPL ENHANCED FINISH Just picked up this coin. Been looking for a DPL at a reasonable price. This replaces my PL coin. I did a comparison between the two and can see by just looking at them that the DPL background was more clear than the PL. Seeing the minute difference help me understand the PL and DPL difference.

Only a 190,000+ minted for this set! Of these only 137 in this rating.... rarity for this coin!
View Coin 50th Anniversary 50C High Relief Silver Proof UNITED STATES 50C 2014 P SILVER HIGH RELIEF FIRST RELEASES NGC PF 70 ULTRA CAMEO This coin I recently picked up to upgrade my collection. My original coin was from my raw 50th Anniversary Silver Set from the mint. I actually had two of these sets and went through each coin and compared them. I then hand picked the better looking of the two and sent them to NGC. The original coin was rated as SP69, which makes it good coin.

Only a 190,000+ minted for this set! Only 652 rated at this level.
View Coin 50th Anniversary 50C High Relief Silver UNITED STATES 50C 2014 D SILVER HIGH RELIEF NGC SP 70 This was the first silver coin that did not have a "S" on it after 1992. A 50th anniversary of the introduction of the JFK half dollar was a good way to put out a coin.

1964 was the year the Half Dollar remembered Kennedy. 50 years later this coin came to be.

This coin I recently picked up to upgrade my collection. I actually had two of these sets and went through each coin and compared them. I then hand picked the better looking of the two and sent them to NGC.

View Coin Solomon Silver Coin. 100th Anniversary of Kennedy's birth. SOLOMON ISLANDS S$1 2017 JOHN F. KENNEDY NGC MS 70 A very nice coin that will go well in my upcoming Camelot collection. The coin celebrates the birth of John F Kennedy 100 years ago.

During WWII, the Japanese controlled nearly the entire western Pacific, and they wanted to take what was left. This included the Solomon Islands, which were key to Australia and New Zealand.

In 1943, the crew of Boat PT-109 commanded by Lieutenant Kennedy attempted to patrol the islands until a Japanese Destroyer rammed the boat, cutting it in half on August 2, 1943. A few men died in the incident.

For two days, they stayed on a small abandoned island, living off coconuts and the prospect of a rescue seemed increasingly far. On 5 August, Kennedy, and his colleague George Ross decided to get back into the ocean in search of food and water. On their way to a nearby island, they noticed two people in a canoe, the native Coast watchers based across the Pacific Islands at the time.

One of the men showed Kennedy how to scratch a message on a coconut that proved useful to get a message to a U.S. base for rescue. The message read:
”Nauro ISL Commander… native knows posit… He can pilot…11 alive need a small boat… Kennedy”.

The coast watchers took the coconut and with only their small canoe risked their lives to deliver the message to the nearest base. The next day, John F. Kennedy and the PT-109 crew were rescued.

JFK was awarded the Navy & Marine Corps Medal and this story became a significant part of his biography as he would be decorated even further later in life.

The coin designer is Stevan Stojanovic, a well-known illustrator from the Royal Australian Mint who was inspired by this impressive act of courage.

The obverse depicts the portrait of young John F. Kennedy, boat PT-109, and was inscribed with “1917-2017,” ”ONE DOLLAR,” and “JOHN F. KENNEDY.” The reverse bears the recognizable effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, completed with the inscriptions: “2017,” “SOLOMON ISLANDS,” and “ELIZABETH II.”

This coin contains 1 troy ounce of .999 fine silver and has a denomination of $1 dollar. The coin diameter of 40.00 mm and the unique frosted finish allows every coin’s detail to stand out.

This coin looks flawless and has a limited mintage of 15,000 pieces.
