Picture of United States of America, Death of President Kennedy 1963-2013 50th Anniversary Set

United States of America, Death of President Kennedy 1963-2013 50th Anniversary Set

In November 1963 President John F. Kennedy was killed in Dallas, Texas. Most of us who are old enough to have been alive at the time remember exactly where we were when we first heard of the killing. Coincraft have issued a unique memento of this man and of his successes. We have kept the price very low in order to make this set accessible to as many collectors as possible. This set is to honour a great man and not to make a lot of money. This collection is only available from Coincraft and it makes an excellent gift to people who remember Kennedy and coin collectors all over the world. There are two unique Kennedy Half Dollars, both legal tender and both capable of being used as real money, rather than the non circulating legal tender coins that most mints issue today. The first is a one year type coin issued for America’s bi-centennial and it is in Proof condition, the finest quality available. The second coin is dated 2013 and was issued to honour the 50th anniversary of his death. The collection also includes a United States Kennedy stamp that has actually been used. The package includes details for what Kennedy did, such as founded the Peace Corps, launched the Moon race and fought for civil rights. There is also a fascinating list of the similarities between the killing of Kennedy and President Lincoln. The collection is priced at just £9.95 and is priced to be given as a gift.
