|1963 Kennedy Gold Medallion|
Gold medallion commemorating the life and death of President John F Kennedy.
John F Kennedy was the second son of Joseph Kennedy, who would later become US ambassador to the United Kingdom. Prior to America’s entry into the War, Kennedy lived in London and saw the Blitz first hand, inspiring him to write his University thesis ‘Why England Slept’ paraphrasing Churchill’s own book ‘When England Slept’ providing a critical analysis on the failure of Britain to confront Hitler.
Upon America’s entry into the War, Kennedy joined the US Navy and commanded a patrol boat in the Pacific. When John’s elder brother Joseph was killed in action in Europe, he inherited his father’s ambition to make him president one day. In 1960, this ambition succeeded in getting him elected to the presidency and John was sworn in the following year.
John F Kennedy was the youngest president ever elected to office, and perhaps one of his greatest achievements was his resolution of the Cuban Missile Crisis in 1962 without provoking a nuclear conflict or backing down.
Tragically, whilst travelling in an open car through Dallas on November 22^nd , 1963, John F Kennedy was shot dead by assassin Lee Harvey Oswald, an act which is still to this day the subject of many conspiracy theories surrounding the true nature of his murder.

At the time of writing we had five Metalimport sets in stock, three Battle of Britain sets, a 1963 Kennedy Gold Medallion Set, and some 1966 Desert War Sets that are apparently all the same weight. As the certificates are so ambiguous, stating the overall weight in troy ounces and the alloy as 18ct but no actual gold weights, we decided to check the weights ourselves - every single set was different - and none of them matched the certificates!
We have stated the lowest and highest weights in the table along with the mean average which we will use to buy and sell these sets.
Weights of individual medallions may vary slightly.

Buying & Selling
Buyers and sellers alike may be interested to note that gold medallions like these often trade at prices close to their intrinsic metal value. While this may not be what sellers wish to hear, it should delight potential buyers.
At the time of creating this page, we had a one of these medallions in stock, and would be happy to sell it for a modest premium over their intrinsic gold content, however as with many pages of our website, this page has a dual purpose, to sell our stock, and to provide information. If you have a similar medallion, which you would like to sell, we would be pleased to hear from you.
