 E-mail this product to a friend

• Three coins struck in .750 copper and .250 nickel bonded to an inner core of 1.000 copper.

• 1979, 1980, and 1981 Susan B. Anthony Dollars from the San Francisco Mint.

• Coins are delivered in a custom coin wallet with a Certificate of Authenticity.

• The Anthony Dollar was first minted in 1979 and was America’s first small-size Dollar coin.

• It was also 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.

• In 1979, 1980, and 1981, the coin was struck for circulation (i.e. business strikes) at San Francisco.

• These were last three business strike coins ever made at the San Francisco Mint.

• Each coin bears the “S” mint mark on the obverse, on the left side just above Anthony’s shoulder.

• The San Francisco Mint generally stopped making coins for circulation in 1955.

• After that date, it made coins almost exclusively for U.S. Proof Sets. 

• It also made Lincoln Pennies for circulation until 1974.

• This set includes the three “S” mint Anthony Dollars made as business strikes.

San Francisco also made Proof Anthony Dollars in these years.

• The 1981 coin is the key;  it was available only in Mint Sets, as none were released into circulation.

• The 1981 “S” business strike Anthony Dollar is actually rarer than the 1981 “S” coin struck as a Proof.

• All three coins are in original Brilliant Uncirculated condition.
