The reverse of the medal features the inscription “INAUGURATED PRESIDENT” centered at the top of the medal and “JANUARY 20, 1961” centered along the bottom of the medal.

The Presidential Seal with the burning torches of liberty on each side with the following excerpt from the Presidents Inaugural address: “WE SHALL PAY ANY PRICE, BEAR ANY BURDEN, MEET ANY HARDSHIP, SUPPORT ANY FRIEND, OPPOSE ANY FOE TO ASSURE THE SURVIVAL OF LIBERTY. JOHN F. KENNEDY.”

The United States Mint produces national medals—selective awards authorized by Congress—to commemorate significant historical events of the Nation, or to honor those persons whose superior deeds and achievements have enriched our history, or the world.

When legislation permits, bronze duplicates (90% copper, 10% zinc), or "List Medals", are struck for sale to the public. Some are produced as part of a continuing series, such as the Presidents of the United States, Secretaries of the Treasury, Directors of the Mint, and Historic Buildings of the United States.
