The youngest man ever to be elected President of the United States, JFK was a popular and charismatic leader during a time of great domestic and international upheaval. His handling of the Cuban Missile Crisis was credited with having brought the world back from the brink of nuclear war. Afterwards, he sought to improve communications between Washington and Moscow and argued for a reduction of their arsenals.

His assassination during a visit to Dallas, Texas on 22nd November 1963 sent shockwaves across the world and became a defining moment in history.

Later, Queen Elizabeth II paid tribute to his legacy when she declared “he championed liberty in an age when its very foundations were being threatened on a universal scale … abroad, peace for a shrinking world; at home, a just and compassionate society.”

The John F. Kennedy Tenth Ounce Gold Coin features a stunning portrait of the President alongside one of his inspirational quotations; “Things do not happen, things are made to happen”.
