One of the most revered figures of the 20th century, John F. Kennedy is best known as the 35th President of the United States, whose term in office came to a tragic premature end at the hands of an assassin. These three stunning colorized coins - fittingly, JFK half dollars - pay tribute to a much younger and lesser known "Jack" Kennedy, however. Long before taking the oath of office and moving into the White House as America's youngest commander in chief, Kennedy was a proud, patriotic American sailor. A lieutenant in the US Navy, he served aboard a PT-109 torpedo boat in the harrowing Pacific Theater of the Second World War. These coins, produced in recognition of the late president's posthumous centennial birthday, highlight Kennedy's brave exploits during the brutal war, an experience that no doubt helped define "Camelot" - as his fairy tale presidency is known - years later. Authentic US legal tender, these collectible half dollars combine the popularity of Kennedy's legacy with the fun, traditional hobby of coin collecting. The collectible currency experts at the Merrick Mint beautifully colorize each coin using a cutting edge, painstakingly detailed multicolor print process. Through this revolutionary technique, the mint applies vibrant inks directly to the surface of each coin, achieving a level of detail, color saturation and durability that is simply unrivaled in the collectible coin industry.
