The design of this splendid coin pays tribute to the act of heroism, endurance, and leadership shown by Lieutenant John F. Kennedy in 1943 during the WWII in the Solomon Islands. This coin is a representation of one of the most famous crashes in the naval history of WWII. On the night of August 2, 1943, boat PT-109 was destroyed by Japanese aircraft. John F. Kennedy attempted to turn his ship starboard to aim the torpedoes, but there wasn’t enough time. The larger Japanese destroyer PT-109, splitting it in half. Most of the crew was thrown into the water by the force of the impact - two were killed and one was badly burned.
Over two days the men desperately looked for a way home with Kennedy taking a leadership role, but the rescue seemed increasingly far. Finally, two native Coastwatchers, who were patrolling the ocean, found the crew and helped them to send a message to a base using a coconut. Today, that very coconut is in the J.F.K museum as a memory of this story.
This remarkable silver coin has a limited mintage (15,000 coins), a denomination of $1 dollar and an impressive coin diameter of 40,00 mm, presenting every detail of the coin stunningly. The reverse side, designed by S.Stojanovic, depicts the PT-109 boat and the portrait of John F. Kennedy completed with the inscriptions: “1917-2017,” “ONE DOLLAR,” and ”JOHN F. KENNEDY.”
