Presidential $1 Coin — Lady Liberty Reverse Statue of Liberty, 1886

Presidential Dollar Coin, Lady Liberty — Statue of Liberty
  On October 28, 1886, President Grover Cleveland accepted the Statue of Liberty on behalf of the United States and said, in part, "We will not forget that Liberty has here made her home; nor shall her chosen altar be neglected."
  She is the work of sculptor Frederic Auguste Bartholdi, who enlisted the assistance of engineer Alexandre Gustave Eiffel, designer of the Eiffel Tower, to help him solve some of the structural challenges presented by creating a statue of such magnitude.
  The Statue of Liberty was completed in 1884 and shipped to the United States in June 1885, having been disassembled into 350 individual pieces that were packed in over 200 crates for the transatlantic voyage. In four months’ time, she was re-assembled in New York Harbor, standing just over 151 feet from the top of the statue’s base to the tip of the torch her right hand holds high above the waters of New York Harbor.
  Originally intended as a gift to celebrate the American Centennial in 1876, the Statue of Liberty was given to the United States as a symbol of the friendship forged between the new American government and the government of France during the American Revolutionary War.
  The tablet she holds in her left hand carries the inscription "July IV MDCCLXXVI" in reference to the July 4, 1776, signing of the Declaration of Independence and the birth of the Nation.
  There are 25 windows running the length of Lady Liberty’s crown, which is topped by seven rays, meant to convey both the light of the sun and the seven seas and continents of the world.
  For millions of Americans, the Statue of Liberty was the first sight that their ancestors saw as they arrived in America after having left their homes in search of a better life for themselves and for their families.
  To celebrate her 100th anniversary, the Statue of Liberty was featured on a United States commemorative coin in 1986. In 1997, a close-up image of the Lady Liberty was chosen for the obverse of the new American Eagle platinum coins.

John F. Kennedy History
John Fitzgerald Kennedy or “JFK” was born in Brookline, Massachusetts, on May 29, 1917. He enrolled at Harvard in 1940 and, during his senior year, wrote his thesis on Great Britain’s lack of readiness for war with Germany, which was later published as Why England Slept.
  Despite numerous health problems, Kennedy joined the U.S. Navy after graduation and went to the South Pacific, where he was injured when the patrol torpedo boat he commanded was rammed by an enemy warship. Despite his injuries, Kennedy guided the surviving crew members to safety and was awarded the Navy and Marine Corps Medal and a Purple Heart for his heroism.
  Following his military service, Kennedy worked as a reporter for a brief period before successfully running for the U.S. House of Representatives, where he served from 1947 to 1953, and then the U.S. Senate, serving there from 1953 to 1960. During his tenure in the Senate, while recuperating from back surgery, Kennedy wrote his Pulitzer Prize–winning book, Profiles in Courage.
  The Democratic Party nominated Kennedy as its candidate for president in 1960. He won the election by a small margin, becoming the youngest man elected president and the first Roman Catholic to hold the office. Kennedy was in office less than three years when he was struck down by an assassin’s bullet on November 22, 1963, sending shock waves of grief around the world.

  His assassination led to the introduction of the Kennedy Half Dollar, which has been issued from 1964 to present. Although the coins are no longer issued for general circulation, the series is highly popular with collectors. In 2014, the 50th anniversary of the series was commemorated with the issuance of a three-quarter ounce gold version of the coin, as well as other special products with coins featuring a restored version of the original portrait design.

Highlights of President Kennedy’s administration include the:
 - Launch of the first American manned spaceflight, Freedom 7
Bay of Pigs invasion, an attempt to overthrow Cuban leader Fidel Castro
Cuban Missile Crisis, the confrontation between the U.S. and Soviet Union over nuclear missiles in Cuba.
 - Signing of the Limited Nuclear Test Ban Treaty, an agreement between the U.S., Great Britain and Soviet Union to ban nuclear weapons testing in the atmosphere, space and underwater.
 - Establishment of the Peace Corps.
