Susan B Anthony $1 Coin
Susan B. Anthony was a pioneer in equality and the women’s rights movement. Under President Jimmy Carter’s term in office, on October 10, 1978, legislation provided for the issuance of the Susan B. Anthony dollar coin. Public Law 95-447.
Chief Engraver of the United States Mint, at the time, Frank Gasparro, designed both the obverse and the reverse. His initials are located on the obverse near the lower right side of the portrait. This coin marks the first time that a portrait of a real woman appeared on a United States circulating coin. For instance, whereas the American Silver Eagle has a figurative woman, Lady Liberty, engraved.
Thus, the Susan B. Anthony $1 Coins were first struck in 1979. Which replaced the Eisenhower Dollar.
The U.S. Mint had high hopes that this coin would ultimately replace the $1 Washington Note. Why? Because it was much cheaper to mint than the paper note. In order for that to happen though, high circulation of the Susan B. Anthony Coin would need to commence. However, many easily confused the coin with a quarter. Therefore, the public ultimately rejected the coin. Causing production to cease in 1981.
But fret not, the United States Post Office requested a reissuance of the coin. In which the U.S. Mint complied. Yet once again in 1999 these coins were struck again. 20 years after it’s original minting.
The obverse design features the likeness of Susan B. Anthony.
The reverse features an American eagle landing on the Moon, an adaptation of the Apollo 11 insignia.
