In 1960, America elected John Fitzgerald Kennedy as its youngest U.S. President in history. His term began with a bold question: “Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country.”

As president, he advocated for freedom at home and abroad. He helped America imagine a boundless future of “new frontiers,” and rallied the nation to put a man on the moon within the decade. All too soon, his visions of a bright future ended with his tragic assassination. Yet, JFK’s life and ideals still inspire Americans — and the whole world. Now, to honour the 100th anniversary of this revered President’s birth, The Bradford Exchange Mint presents The 100th Anniversary John F. Kennedy Silver Piedfort Ultra High Relief Proof Coin.


 This magnificent coin bears the prized designation of a Piedfort coin, indicating that it is far heavier and thicker than ordinary strikes. Containing two ounces (62.206 grams) of .999 Pure Silver, it is struck in Ultra High Relief to provide extraordinary sculptural depth and dimension. The reverse bears an iconic Ultra High Relief portrait of JFK. Queen Elizabeth II graces the obverse, marking it as official legal tender from the British Virgin Islands.


Adding to this all-new commemorative coin’s stature, it also bears the coveted “First Day” strike designation. This is given only to the limited number of coins struck on the first day of mintage, when the specially polished coining dies produce their finest strikes. Your coin arrives in prized Proof condition, preserved for future generations in a crystal-clear capsule. Strictly limited to a worldwide distribution of 650 coins, your coin is one of an edition of only 375 coins presented by The Bradford Exchange Mint.
