Product Description

The 1979-S Proof Susan B Anthony Dollar (Type 2) is a United States coin minted from 1979 to 1981, and again in 1999. It depicts women's suffrage campaigner Susan B. Anthony on a dollar coin. It was the first circulating U.S. coin with the portrait of an actual woman rather than an allegorical female figure such as 'Liberty'. The reverse depicts an eagle flying above the moon(with the Earth in the background), a design adapted from the Apollo 11 mission insignia that was also present on the previously issued Eisenhower Dollar. It was one of the most unpopular coins in American history. The coin is often referred to affectionately by collectors as the "Susan B." or "Susie".

How do you distinguish between the Type 1 and the Type 2? For the 1979, the Type 1 is referred to the "filled 'S'". The mint mark will appear to be a glob of metal vaguely resembling an "S". If, however, the mint mark actually looks like an "S", the coin is the Type 2 or "clear 'S'" dollar, which is generally more valuable.
