Press Release (ePRNews.com) - NILES, Ill. - Jan 20, 2017 - New Proof Coin Marks
the 100th Anniversary ofJohn F. Kennedy’s Birth
Niles, IL — January 20, 2017. The Bradford Exchange Mint is pleased to announce the release of The John F. Kennedy 100th Anniversary Legacy Gold Proof Coin. Richly plated in 24K gold, this new, limited-edition proof coin commemorates the 100th Anniversary of President John Fitzgerald Kennedy’s birth on May 29, 1917.
A decorated World War II hero and U.S. Senator, Kennedy was elected the 35th President of the United States in 1960. He boldly began his term with a challenge: “Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country.” All too soon, it ended, with his tragic assassination. Yet, President Kennedy’s shining visions of freedom and a boundless future of “new frontiers” still inspire Americans — and the whole world — today.
“For many Americans, JFK set the standard for what a president should be,” said Bradford Exchange Mint Director Rob Pomeroy. “While his work was left unfinished, his ideals and optimism continue to influence new generations of Americans. And a commemorative coin honoring this milestone 100th anniversary is a great way to celebrate the enduring impact of his life and legacy.”
