This third 2015-dated chronicles set launched last week for $57.95, the same price as the first two honoring Harry S. Truman and Dwight D. Eisenhower. These two earlier sets each had limits of 17,000 and sold out within 15 minutes of their launch. The mintage bar was raised for the JFK set, bumped up to 50,000, extending its on sale time. Most were taken early with 45,613 ordered during the first 12 hours. Buying has since slowed with sales through Tuesday, the seventh day of its release, reaching 48,117 for 96.2% of the maximum.
To get one or two sets, which is the household ordering limit, visit this U.S. Mint product page or call 1-800-USA-MINT (872-6468).

Here are photos of the 2015-P Reverse Proof John F. Kennedy Presidential $1 Coin (obverse or heads side and reverse or tails side). The reverse proof Presidential $1 is the third one issued by the U.S. Mint, with the first one in the 2015 Harry S. Truman Coin and Chronicles Set and the second one in the 2015 Dwight D. Eisenhower Coin and Chronicles Set. Opposite of standard proofs, reverse proof coins have frosty fields and raised mirror-like devices.
Here are two photos of both sides of the one-ounce, .999 fine John F. Kennedy Presidential Silver Medal. The medal is a duplicate of the inaugural Kennedy bronze medal from 1961.
