PCGS - If ever there were a numismatic topic that receives little coverage, it's the 1980 Susan B. Anthony dollar. What makes the 1980 Susan B. Anthony dollars so special? Well, as many numismatists perhaps believe, probably nothing much at all. The Susan B. Anthony dollar series itself sees little airtime as it is. The maligned coin was beleaguered by the similarity in its size and shape to the quarter dollar, with many confusing the Susan B. Anthony dollar - the first circulating United States coin to carry the likeness of an actual woman - with the Washington quarter. And much for that reason, the public widely shunned the "Susie B.," a coin first issued in 1979 and designed by Frank Gasparro that honors the iconic woman's suffrage leader who rose to prominence in the latter half of the 19th century.

So, why focus on the 1980 Susan B. Anthony dollar? Perhaps because it's a coin that, individually, is about as overlooked as a modern coin can be. For one, the 1980 Susan B. Anthony dollars belongs to one of the shortest-lived U.S. coin series, minted only from 1979 through 1981 and then once more in 1999. What's more, the 1980 Susan B. Anthony dollar was struck during one of the numismatically "least interesting" years for the series; several varieties are widely cataloged for the 1979 and 1981 Dollars, and the 1999 Susan B. Anthony dollar is a spectacle in its own right - struck a generation after its most previous predecessor rolled off the presses.

But 1980? Is there anything really special about the 1980 Susan B. Anthony dollar? Sure, if you dig deep enough.
