Description

The Susan B. Anthony Dollar was introduced in 1979 to replace the dollar bill.  The Anthony Dollar was first minted in 1979 and was America’s first small-size Dollar coin. It was the first circulating coin to feature an identifiable woman.

It depicts Susan B. Anthony (1820-1906), the woman’s rights pioneer whose work led to the 19th Amendment to the Constitution that assures women the right to vote.

The reverse is an adaptation of the official Apollo 11 mission patch; it shows an American eagle landing on the moon, with the Earth above its head.

  • The first-year 1979 coin was struck at all three U.S. Mints: Philadelphia, Denver, and San Francisco.
  • This collection includes all three 1979 coins from all three Mints.
  • Coins are identified by the Mint mark on the obverse, on the left side just above Anthony’s shoulder.
  • “P” identifies the coin struck at Philadelphia, “D” is Denver, and “S” is San Francisco.
These coins were struck almost 40 years ago.  The Anthony Dollar was unpopular with the public because it was too easily confused with the Quarter, it was the same color and almost the same size as the Quarter. Ironically, the Anthony Dollar is now one of the most popular U.S. coins.  Due to the short minting period, supplies of Anthony Dollars are limited.
