  • Description:

    The Dansco 8180 Susan B. Anthony coin album, covering the years 1979 to 1999, is a comprehensive collection that includes both circulation issues and proof-only releases of this iconic coin series. This album is a valuable addition to any numismatist's collection, providing a complete historical overview of the Susan B. Anthony dollar, its design, and its significance in American coinage.

    The Susan B. Anthony dollar, introduced in 1979, holds a unique place in American numismatic history as the first U.S. coin to feature a real historical woman rather than an allegorical figure. It pays tribute to Susan B. Anthony, a pioneering advocate for women's suffrage and civil rights in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The coin's issuance marked a significant milestone in recognizing the contributions of women in American history.

    The obverse (front) design of the Susan B. Anthony dollar features a portrait of Susan B. Anthony herself. The design was based on a photograph taken in 1905 and captures her dignified and determined expression. The words "LIBERTY," "IN GOD WE TRUST," and the date of issue encircle the portrait, while the mint mark can be found below Anthony's chin. The reverse (back) design of the coin depicts an adaptation of the Apollo 11 mission insignia, symbolizing the United States' successful landing on the moon in 1969. The design includes an eagle landing on the moon's surface, holding an olive branch in its beak, with Earth in the background. The legend "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA" and the denomination "ONE DOLLAR" complete the reverse design.

    The Dansco 8180 album provides dedicated spaces for both the circulation strikes and the proof-only issues of the Susan B. Anthony dollar series. While the circulation issues were intended for general use in commerce, the proof coins were specially minted with polished dies and planchets, resulting in a mirror-like finish and sharp, frosted details. Collectors appreciate the Dansco album's inclusion of these proof-only issues, which showcase the exceptional quality and craftsmanship of these coins.

    The Susan B. Anthony dollar has a denomination of one dollar, making it suitable for various everyday transactions. Despite initial confusion with its similarity in size and color to the quarter, the coin served its intended purpose in circulation and contributed to the nation's coinage diversity during its production years.

    The condition of the coins in the Dansco 8180 album can vary widely, as it encompasses a range of issues from circulation strikes to proof coins. Circulation strikes may exhibit wear and handling marks, while proof coins should be in pristine, collector-grade condition with no signs of wear. The condition of individual coins will depend on their previous handling and storage.

    Collectors often appreciate Dansco albums for their sturdy construction and archival-quality materials. These albums are designed to protect and preserve the coins within, ensuring they remain in collectible condition for years to come. The album's pages provide clear, labeled slots for each coin, allowing collectors to organize and display their Susan B. Anthony dollars with ease.

    In conclusion, the Dansco 8180 Susan B. Anthony coin album offers collectors a comprehensive and organized way to collect and display this historically significant series. With spaces for both circulation strikes and proof-only issues, the album highlights the evolution of the Susan B. Anthony dollar and its role in recognizing the contributions of Susan B. Anthony to American history and the ongoing pursuit of gender equality.
