Why order this 2021-P Commemorative Christa McAuliffe Uncirculated Silver Dollar?
Students, teachers, and others watched in awe and anticipation and awe on January 28, 1986 as Christa McAuliffe and six other astronauts prepared to take flight on the Space Shuttle. McAuliffe was to be the first teacher in space. 73 seconds after liftoff, wonder became horror as the Challenger exploded on live television, tragically killing all astronauts onboard. Now, the U.S. Mint pays tribute to those who died on the 35th anniversary of the disaster.
Inspiring McAuliffe and Students Design by Emily Damstra
Obverse: Designed by Laurie Musser and sculpted by Phebe Hemphill, the obverse design features McAuliffe with a hopeful gaze. "CHRISTA MCAULIFFE" is inscribed along the rim in the upper left, while additional inscriptions note the date, "2021," "LIBERTY," and the national motto, "IN GOD WE TRUST."
Reverse: On the reverse, McAuliffe points toward the heavens as students look on in awe. Seven stars in the sky represent the astronauts who lost their lives in the disaster. "I TOUGH THE FUTURE. I TEACH," is inscribed at the top, while the FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) logo is also included on this face. Joseph Menna sculpted Emily Damstra's design. Also included along the rim are the inscriptions "E PLURIBUS UNUM," "ONE DOLLAR," and "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA."
