Proof J.F. Kennedy & Moon Landing piece that was struck at the Brussels mint in 1970 for the 10th Anniversary of Independence from France. Please comment otherwise, but I believe this should also be considered in the Space/Apollo Moon Landing theme of coins. Of course Kennedy initiated the effort "To land a man on the moon..." and this scarce piece shows the moon with the Command Vehicle in orbit.
Chad is a land locked country with a varied terrain and around 200 different cultural heritages. The JFK piece has the same reverse as the others, featuring a bold view of the continent of Africa where Chad is outlined in the central area of the Sahara desert. This 300 Francs coin has a mintage of only 504 struck, all in proof. A set was issued featuring Martin Luther King and the two Kennedy brothers, all three were assassinated.
Robert Francis Kennedy (November 20, 1925 – June 6, 1968) was an American politician and lawyer who served as the 64th United States Attorney General from January 1961 to September 1964, and as a U.S. Senator from New York from January 1965 until his assassination in June 1968. Kennedy, like his brothers John and Edward, was a prominent member of the Democratic Party and has come to be viewed by some historians as an icon of modern American liberalism.
On May 25, 1961 Kennedy announced the goal of going to the moon in a speech titled "Special Message to the Congress on Urgent National Needs":
".. I believe that this nation should commit itself to achieving the goal, before this decade is out, of landing a man on the Moon and returning him safely to the Earth. No single space project in this period will be more impressive to mankind, or more important for the long-range exploration of space; and none will be so difficult or expensive to accomplish."
