The Stars Below My Feet – Rare Coin Market Review
« on: March 17, 2021, 06:02:32 AM »
“...On the spacewalk Mr. Liu follows him part way out of the hatch to assist. At one point a sensor error triggers a fire alarm. Fire is one of the most feared dangers of spaceflight. At that very moment the Shenzhou 7 loses contact with Earth. The passing moments seem like an eternity, but when contact is reestablished all is well and Mr. Liu can be heard advising Mr. Zhai, “Come on and let’s carry out this mission, anyway." As Mr. Zhai floats in space Mr. Liu hands him a Chinese flag to wave. Later, from the capsule, Mr. Liu talks to his family who ask what space is like. He replies, ‘There are stars below my feet that twinkle. It’s so, so beautiful.‘“

Many thanks to PCGS for publishing, “The Stars Below My Feet,“ in  Rare Coin Market Review. The story reviews China's coins and medals devoted to its lunar exploration program.

Can you tell your boss: PCGS customer service is the worst in the World?

Talk to someone(I mean the only one guy) at (800) 447-8848 is 100% impossible

I tried email.  Three weeks later I got a response.

I work almost exclusively with the Shanghai office, but I'll remember this and discuss it when I can. I'm with you that customer service is important.

I have noticed that the early year Aerospace or Space Industry coins/medals were in a bit lower demand.
Maybe this article will bring them back to attention.     They seem to have a bright future...

Once again, photo of my rare Aerospace medal w/ only 3 NGC total pop   67, 65 & 63.    Same pop number for a few years.     Where are these medals?   Is this the rarest Space Industry?    Gilt inlay too.    The newer issue coins see demand so why not the early issue?     Maybe a good medal to search for.....

Good article.   I now understand the design of the woman, Chang'e, in space.   (TV TUBI had some good shows on China that explained many designs we see today.)

At some point Space Industry will be back in demand.    Maybe that will bring attention to very undervalued Military medals also as they are a part of the beginning of Space Industry......
