This set contains three coins (from the Philadelphia, Denver, and San Francisco Mints) which were struck in .750 copper and .250 nickel bonded to an inner core of 1.000 copper. The Anthony Dollar was initially minted in 1979 and was America’s first small-size Dollar coin. It was also the first U.S. circulating coin to feature an identifiable woman. The reverse depicts an adaptation of the official Apollo 11 mission patch with an American eagle landing on the moon and the Earth above its head.
At first, the Anthony Dollar was unpopular with the public because its size and color was too easily confused with the Quarter. Ironically, just 30 years later, the Anthony Dollar has now become one of the most popular U.S. coins! Struck for just four short years between 1979 and 1999, supplies of Anthony Dollars are now limited.
All three coins are in original Brilliant Uncirculated condition and are delivered in a custom display with a Certificate of Authenticity.
