About this Product Full Product Name
The Forgotten Silver Dollar Proof Sets

The publics rejection of the larger sized Eisenhower Dollar struck during the 70's led the way to a new smaller sized dollar being introduced in 1979. But this time they introduced a dollar coin that was the same size as a quarter .. which sealed its fate after only 3 years .. the shortest dollar series in US History.

The dollar's design was a US Mint 1st - Susan B Anthony's likeness represented the 1st time a woman, not a "figure", appeared on a circulating US coin. The reverse also had a 1st - it utilized the same design as the previous release ( the Eisenhower ).
