MULTI (D)(P)

Look for the 2015 Coin and Chronicles Set – Harry S. Truman on June 30th! This unique keepsake will feature a Presidential $1 Reverse Proof Coin—only available as a part of this set—along with a silver presidential medal, stamp and companion informational booklet. They are all displayed in a rich red folder covered in a soft-touch material with a handsome textured look that makes an excellent gift.

And did you know that Truman, a World War I veteran, led the effort to establish a single day of commemoration for citizens to come together and thank our military members for their service? Armed Forces Day, May 16, was created to celebrate the unification of all the branches of the military under the Department of Defense.

Celebrate With These Special Collectibles

It’s hard to imagine that President John F. Kennedy would have turned 98 years old this month. Born May 29, 1917, in Brookline, Mass., highlights of his brief time in office included the launch of Freedom 7, the Limited Nuclear Test Ban Treaty and establishment of the Peace Corps. He also appointed United States Mint Director Eva Adams, who served in the office until 1969.

Celebrate his birthday this year with special keepsakes like the 50th Anniversary Kennedy Half Dollar Silver Coin Collection! Released last year, it includes four Kennedy half dollars struck in 90 percent silver with four different finishes – one from each of the United States Mint facilities in West Point, Philadelphia, San Francisco and Denver. Perfect for any collector or a great gift for someone special!
