2017 1 oz Silver John F. Kennedy JFK Solomon Islands $1 Coin .999 Fine (In Assay) - 100th Anniv. JFK PT109


The 2017 1 oz Silver John F. Kennedy JFK Solomon Islands $1 Coin is a commemorative coin minted in celebration of the 100th anniversary of John Fitzgerald Kennedy’s birth year - the 35th President of the United States. Produced by the Royal Australian Mint this exclusive coin is one of the most remarkable releases in 2017.

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 WWII in the Solomon Islands.This coin is a representation of the most famous crash in naval history of this war. 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 split PT-109 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 send a message to a base by using a coconut. Today, that very coconut is in the J.F.K museum in memory of that story.

This outstanding 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.”
