Why order this 2-Coin Proof + Uncirculated 2021-P Christa McAuliffe Commemorative Silver Dollar Set?
The U.S. Mint released these two coins to mark the 35th anniversary of the Space Shuttle Challenger disaster. The Challenger crew included Christa McAuliffe, who was set to become the first teacher to go to space. 17% of Americans watched with eager anticipation as the shuttle set off for space. Just 73 seconds after liftoff, the Challenger broke apart. Tragically, all seven crew members were killed. That night, President Ronald Reagan spoke to the nation from the Oval Office, providing much needed leadership and consolation for a nation in mourning.
Striking McAuliffe and Students Design by Emily Damstra
The two coins in this set share common designs and inscriptions. Obverse: Designed by Laurie Musser and sculpted by Phebe Hemphill, the obverse image shows McAuliffe with a hopeful gaze. Her name, "CHRISTA MCAULIFFE," is inscribed prominently along the rim. Other rim inscriptions include the date, "2021," the statutory inscription "LIBERTY," and the national motto, "IN GOD WE TRUST."
Reverse: Emily Damstra's reverse design, which was sculpted by Joseph Menna, depicts McAuliffe pointing to the sky, which represents the future, as enthralled students look on. The For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology logo is included on the left, while seven stars represent the astronauts who lost their lives on the mission. "I TOUCH THE FUTURE. I TEACH," is inscribed at the top. Additional rim inscriptions read, "E PLURIBUS UNUM," "ONE DOLLAR," and "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA."
Impeccable MS70 + PR70 FS with Flag Labels
Professional Coin Grading Service (PCGS) graded the coins in this set Mint State 70 and Proof 70. In doing so, they certified that the coins appear perfect as seen under 5x magnification. They also credited the coins for the fact that they were submitted no more than 30 days after their initial mint release by giving them First Strikes certification. This information comes on labels that bear the American flag.
