I really dig and want the Christa McAuliffe commemorative coin. But I just can't justify the price tag.

I struggled with it too. Eventually got it, but the price seemed steep.

I'm feeling the same but towards the US Coast Guard Metal.
Love the design hate the price...
I'm by no means a pro and will never claim to be...just my 2 cents

I bought one and thought it was good value compared with coins issued by The Royal Mint in the UK. The silver proof version of the 2021 5 Royal Albert Hall commemorative, for instance, sells for 92.50, which works out at $127.67 for a similar sized coin. UK collectors do however usually have the option of buying a cupro-nickel version, although these are grossly overpriced at 13 in an unnecessary fancy folder, and are no longer sold at face value through banks.

I haven't purchased it yet, but I do plan to get it. I need it for my continuing commemorative collection.

Agreed that the mint prices are high but as a collector I get each proof from the mint yearly. The set is getting large.

I agree with the OP. These will probably trade for silver value only in the near future.

Poor sales and a high price shouldn't keep you from owning what you want. If it goes to melt price later so be it. That goes for most everything but I bought it be because I think Christa McAuliffe is a hero for the sacrifice.

I like the coin. At first I was on the fence but the more I read about it, the more I was on board. There is at least one good topic here on CCF that discusses it. If I have some time later tonight I'll look for it.

And yes, I'm not thrilled with the Mint prices either but compared to some other countries, we still have it pretty cheap here in the U.S.

I'll probably get one. I have a few astronaut autographs. From Clayton Anderson's management site I got personalized signed pics for the grandkids.
