Why order this 2021-P Christa McAuliffe Commemorative Proof Silver Dollar?

On January 28, 1986, 17% of Americans watched live in wonder as Christa McAuliffe sought to become the first teacher in space. She and six other astronauts lifted off shortly after 11:30 a.m. Eastern. 73 seconds into its flight, awe turned to horror as the Space Shuttle broke apart, resulting in the tragic deaths of the seven astronauts on board. Now, the United States Mint pays tribute to McAuliffe and the other astronauts with this Silver Dollar Proof that marks the 35th anniversary of the disaster.
