The Susan B Anthony Dollar was struck by the US Mint from 1979 through 1981 and then again in 1999. The coin depicts Susan B Anthony, a prominent American civil rights leader. She was instrumental in the 19th century women's right movement introducing women's suffrage into the US. The Susan B Anthony Dollar was the first US circulating coin to depict a woman that was not a mythical female icon. The Susan B Anthony Dollars or 'Susies' failed to circulate well after initial release. It did not make sense to the general public that the SBA Dollar was smaller and weighed less than the half Dollar. Also, because of their similar size and similar color the 'Susies' where often mistaken for quarters. A large number of Susan B Anthony Dollars where minted in 1979. Because of the poor circulation only a small number of SBA Dollars where minted in 1980 and only Mint sets in 1981. The Treasury's supply lasted until 1998. The 'Susies' were finally restruck in 1999 due to demand for Dollar coins. The Susan B Anthony Dollar was replaced the following year with the Sacagawea Dollar.
Chief US Mint Engraver Frank Gasparro designed the coin featuring a depiction of Susan B Anthony on the obverse. The reverse commemorates the Apollo11 Moon landing with an image of the mission insignia which was also present on the previously issued Eisenhower Dollar. The Susan B Anthony Dollar also features a hendecagon or 11 sided rim bordering the edge of both sides. The 11 sided shape matches the shape of the silicon wafer with the Apollo 11 Goodwill Messages left on the Moon's Sea of Tranquility. The Susan B Anthony Dollar weighs 8.1 grams and has a diameter of 26.5 mm. It is composed of an outer layer of .750 copper and .250 nickel bonded to an inner core of pure copper. The SBA Dollar also features a reeded edge.
