Why purchase this Proof 2021-P Christa McAuliffe Commemorative Silver Dollar?
Share in the U.S. Mint's commemoration of the 35th anniversary of the Space Shuttle Challenger disaster with this Christa McAuliffe commemorative. Tens of millions of Americans watched in wonder as Christa McAuliffe, a teacher, joined six other astronauts board the Challenger and set off toward space. Wonder quickly turned to horror, though, when 73 seconds into the flight, the craft broke apart. Tragically, all seven astronauts were killed. That night, President Ronald Reagan addressed the nation, providing much needed consolation for a mourning nation.
Poignant Christa McAuliffe Design by Emily Damstra
Obverse: Christa McAuliffe shows a hopeful gaze on the obverse. The image was designed by Laurie Musser and sculpted by Phebe Hemphill. The astronaut's name is inscribed prominently in the upper left, while other inscriptions read, "LIBERTY," "2021," and "IN GOD WE TRUST.'
Reverse: Emily Damstra created and Joseph Menna sculpted the reverse image. McAuliffe points skyward, symbolic of pointing toward the future, as three students look on in awe. The For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology is on the left, while seven stars represent the astronauts who perished on the Challenger. "I TOUCH THE FUTURE. I TEACH," is inscribed at the top of this face. Additional reverse inscriptions note the name of the issuing country, "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," the coin's face value, "ONE DOLLAR," and the second statutory motto, "E PLURIBUS UNUM."
