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

• 1979 Susan B. Anthony Dollars were struck at the Philadelphia, Denver, and San Francisco Mints.

• 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.

• The coin was struck for just four years between 1979 and 1999.

• 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 30 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.

• Coin is in original Brilliant Uncirculated condition.
