1979, 1980, and 1981 Susan B. Anthony Dollars from the San Francisco Mint.
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.
In 1979, 1980, and 1981, the coin was struck for circulation at the San Francisco Mint. These were last three business strike coins ever made at the San Francisco Mint. Each coin bears the 'S' mint mark on the obverse, on the left side just above Anthony's shoulder. The San Francisco Mint generally stopped making coins for circulation in 1955. After that date, it made coins almost exclusively for U.S. Proof Sets.
The 1981 coin is the key; it was available only in Mint Sets, as none were released into circulation. The 1981 'S' business strike Anthony Dollar is actually rarer than the 1981 'S' coin struck as a Proof.
All three coins are in original Brilliant Uncirculated condition and are delivered in a custom coin wallet with a Certificate of Authenticity.
