Description

2017 marked the Centenary of John F. Kennedy’s birth and in order to celebrate the milestone of such an influential figure, the Pobjoy Mint thought it appropriate to release this beautiful numismatic tribute. They have based the image of JFK on a medal crafted by the internationally acclaimed medallist Paul Vincze, a Hungarian artist who excels at portraiture. They have struck this coin in reserves proof which means the effigies on each side have been struck in reverse proof with a frosted background.

In order to maintain the exclusivity of this coin Pobjoy only minted 50,000 in Reverse Proof .999 Fine Silver each weighing 1 troy oz. Produced for British Virgin Islands.  The obverse features an effigy design of Queen Elizabeth II designed by and exclusive to Pobjoy which makes this coin special. 

In recent years, reverse proof coins have added another layer of appeal to proof coins. Rather than featuring a frosted device and a mirrored field, reverse proof coins feature a frosted field and a mirrored device. The visual effect of the reverse proof is remarkable. The design on a standard proof coin may appear like a crisp black and white photograph, but the design on a reverse proof will appear like the negative of a black and white photograph. The specially polished blanks used in striking the coin are responsible for this effect.
