The pen President Kennedy used to sign the ANA charter

The Pen



That's not just any pen. That's the pen that President John. F. Kennedy used to sign the ANA's amended federal charter on April 10, 1962. It will be part of the Museum Showcase at the National Money Show in Dallas, along with several other Kennedy-related numismatic artifacts. 


The ANA's original federal charter was signed on April 23, 1912, by President William Taft. The amended charter that Kennedy signed allowed for a larger board of governors. 


Here's another Kennedy-related numismatic artifact we'll have on display in Dallas: An ANA commemorative to celebrate the first lunar landing.
