John F. Kennedy Presidential $1 Coin and First Spouse Medal Set Release Details

KennedyThe United States Mint has announced it will open sales of the Presidential $1 Coin & First Spouse Medal Set-John F. Kennedy at noon Eastern Time on Thursday, July 9. The Kennedy set will include one uncirculated John F. Kennedy Presidential Dollar and a bronze medal featuring the portrait of Jackie Kennedy found on the popular Jacqueline Kennedy First Spouse Gold Coin, released on June 25.

As with previous Presidential Coin and First Spouse Medal sets, the coin and medal are to come affixed to a dense plastic card featuring portraits of the President and the First Lady, with historical information printed on the back of the card. Also included is a certificate of authenticity. The sets will be available for purchase at $9.95 each.

The Kennedy Coin and Medal Set will be the third of four such releases in 2015. The Harry S. and Bess Truman Set, released on April 29, is now available for purchase, while the Dwight D. and Mamie Eisenhower set, released on May 12, is currently sold out. A Presidential Coin and First Spouse Medal Set honoring Lyndon and Claudia Taylor “Ladybird” Johnson is scheduled for release later this summer.

The Kennedy set is likely to generate a lot of interest. As noted by MNB, the Jacqueline Kennedy First Spouse Gold Coin has sold far better than its recent predecessors, with current sales figures totaling 12,008 across proof and uncirculated pieces.

    The mint just ran out of ASE blanks. It will resume sales in 2 weeks. I wonder if they did not anticipate demand 🙂 And as they just stopped allocation I wonder what the sales numbers are for today or did the mint just not have enough blanks in stock. I wonder what they need the inventory level to be in order to stop allocation? In either case expect the AP’s to raise premiums, so much for taking advantage of the low spot price. Then people wonder why I want the mint to sell its bullion directly to the public. The Mint screws up, and the only winners are the APs.

    It was reported that the Mint sold 2 Million ASE Coins in Under 2 Hours!. If anyone wants Blue Ridge…

    Sorry that looks to be a headline from 2014. You would think the Mint would have learned by now…

    Last correction…The mint is out of blanks, and will not sell ASEs for two weeks . That is from today. The amount sold was from a 2014 headline. Just imagine if we had real demand, I say this because the silver spot price keeps dropping “as a stronger dollar tarnished the appeal of precious metals.”

    Just FYI, the sets just went to Unavailable status, but that doesn’t mean they’re sold out. I’m sure the US Mint will assemble more.

    I missed the ball on the Mr. & Mrs. Kennedy sets. The Jackie medal looks to be about a .50 cent size. Mint says it will have more to ship Oct. 1, 2015. I would bet it will happen sooner. They sure sold out quick!! If Ag gets near 10 I would certainly consider pulling the trigger on a batch!! I think the rosy times (“strong dollar”) is temporary, somehow I see the dollar strong overseas, but a disaster here! Are there any plans to pay back our loans, does anybody know??
