1979 Susan B. Anthony First Year of Issue Mint Mark Set BU


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

• 1979 Susan B. Anthony Dollars from the Philadelphia, Denver, and San Francisco Mints.

• Coins are delivered in a custom display 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.

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

• 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 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.

• All three coins are in original Brilliant Uncirculated condition.
