  • Title: 1979 S Susan B Anthony Dollar Type 2 PF70 UC NGC Brown Label
  • Metal: Silver

Full Description

When American women were searching for a leader on their quest to voter’s rights, Susan B. Anthony was ready to take on the fight. In 1979, the U.S. Mint honored her legacy with the Susan B. Anthony Dollar. This dollar coin was designed to take the place of the large, bulky Eisenhower dollar, but the SBA dollar proved too small and too hard to distinguish from a quarter. Therefore, this coins was only minted in a few years. The 1979 Susan B. Anthony Dollar offered here has the less common Type 2 mintmark and is in Proof 70 Ultra Cameo condition as certified by its NGC Brown Label.

Obverse

The front of the coin features a portrait of Susan B. Anthony as Gasparro envisioned her at age 50, at the height of her political influence. Two other portraits were rejected by Susan B. Anthony III, the social reformer’s great niece, one because it showed her too old and the other because it showed her too young and made “too pretty.” An eleven-sided inner border contains the portrait, along with the word ‘Liberty,’ the year of issue, and the motto ‘In God We Trust.’ Thirteen stars in total run between the date and ‘Liberty.’ The mintmark is shown below the portrait of Anthony.

Reverse

The back of the coin displays Gasparro’s 1971 design of an eagle carrying an olive branch while landing on the moon’s surface. This design was patterned after the NASA’s Apollo 11 insignia patch. Also on the reverse are ‘United States of America’ and ‘One Dollar.’
