Why order this Proof + Uncirculated 2021-P Christa McAuliffe Commemorative Silver Dollar 2-Coin Set?
On January 28, 1986, Americans suffered a collective national tragedy. An estimated 17% of Americans were watching on live television as seven astronauts, including teacher Christa McAuliffe, boarded the Space Shuttle Challenger. McAuliffe was to be the first teacher in space. Just 73 second after liftoff, the Challenger broke apart, and all seven crewmembers were tragically lost. That night, President Ronald Reagan consoled a mourning nation in one of the most important speeches of the 20th century. This coin marks the 35th anniversary of the occasion.
Powerful Christa McAuliffe Design by Emily Damstra
The two coins in this set share the same designs and inscriptions. Obverse: Phebe Hemphill sculpted a design by Laurie Musser for the obverse. McAuliffe is depicted with a hopeful gaze. Her name, "CHRISTA MCAULIFFE," features prominently along the rim. Additional rim inscriptions note the coin's date, "2021," the word "LIBERTY," and the national motto, "IN GOD WE TRUST."
Reverse: On the reverse is a design that was created by Emily Damstra and sculpted by Joseph Menna. McAuliffe stands with inspired students as she points toward the sky, representing the future. For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology's logo is on the left, while seven stars represent the astronauts who were lost. The inscription "I TOUCH THE FUTURE. I TEACH," is inscribed prominently at the top of this face. Other reverse inscriptions read, "E PLURIBUS UNUM," "ONE DOLLAR," and "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA."
