British Virgin Islands 2017 "100th Anniversary" JFK Reverse Proof
|Item Number: 48262|
|President John F. Kennedy has been on the face of U.S. half-dollars since 1964, and his image is immensely popular. Now, the Pobjoy Mint, in concert with the British Virgin Islands, has produced just 50,000 of these very special silver bullion coins in reverse proof form.
Born in 1917, John F. Kennedy was elected president in 1961, and his life was tragically lost in 1963. Since then, he has become an American icon. May 29, 2017 would have been his 100th birthday, and there is no better way to celebrate than this precious silver commemorative.
Shown is an engraving of President Kennedy, cast in .9999 fine investment-grade silver. The obverse displays Queen Elizabeth II.
