Why add the 1979 Susan B. Anthony Dollar Souvenir set to your collection?

This 1979 Susan B. Anthony Dollar Souvenir Set ships to you GEM Brilliant Uncirculated condition in the government cello pack and original green envelope. This souvenir set contains three SBA "small" dollars, one struck at each Mint facility.

Preparations for a small cupro-nickel alloy dollar began in earnest at the US Mint in 1976. The design proposed originally to replace the larger Eisenhower Dollar coin featured a depiction of Lady Liberty instead of the Susan B. Anthony design that was eventually adopted. Susan B. Anthony was a Quaker, feminist and social reformer who was a prominent proponent of Women's voting rights and the abolition of slavery.

What is the design of the Susan B. Anthony Dollar?

The obverse design features a right facing profile portrait of Susan B. Anthony as designed by Frank Gasparro, the Tenth Chief Engraver of the US Mint. The reverse of the coin was also designed by Mr. Gasparro and was a modified version of the Apollo 11 Mission Insignia, which shows an eagle landing on the moon. This design was also used on the previous "Ike" dollar. Mr. Gasparro thought of the SBA dollar as his highest career achievement despite the lukewarm reception the coin had with the public.
