Description

2017 marks the centenary of John F. Kennedy’s birth and in order to celebrate the milestone of such an influential figure, Pobjoy Mint thought it appropriate to release this beautiful numismatic tribute.

John Fitzgerald Kennedy, also known as ‘JFK’’, was born in May 1917 in Massachusetts and spent the first 10 years of his life in Boston until his family moved to the Bronx where he spent his middle school years. Kennedy later went on to study at the London School of Economics and Harvard University which laid the foundations of his political career. The Kennedy family was a very well established US political family and produced a president, three senators and multiple other politicians.

Kennedy had a distinguished military career from 1941-1945 and served in WW2 and Pacific War. One notable event was when the torpedo boat Kennedy was serving on was sunk. In order to save the crew, he had to swim a distance of about three and a half miles at night whilst towing an injured comrade from the wreck to a nearby island. JFK received multiple medals and awards for his service including the Purple Heart making him the only president to receive one.
