The Anthony Dollar was the first circulating coin to feature an identifiable woman. It honors 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 design is adapted from the Apollo 11 mission patch and shows an American eagle landing on the moon. The Earth can be seen above the eagle’s head.
This historic coin was made only from 1979-1981 and again in 1999. However, the 1981 coin was unique because no coins were made for circulation. The only coins in 1981 were those struck for collectors and included in official Mint Sets and Proof Sets from the U.S. Mint.
As a result, the 1981 Anthony Dollar is the rarest year of issue and was never seen in circulation even in 1981.
This historic coin is hand-selected in original Brilliant Uncirculated condition, so it is just as fresh and beautiful as the day it was struck. It is displayed in a custom presentation with a Certificate of Authenticity.
