28 years of Dollar Coins

March 28, 2007

28 years of US Dollar Coins, obverse view.

Back in 1979, we got the Susan B. Anthony Dollar Coin.
Another legacy of the Carter Administration, a dollar that looks and feels like a quarter. Thanks Jimmy

In 2000, the Sacagawea Dollar Coin was released. This intelligent redesign kept the same size and weight (making it vending machine compatible with the Susie B.), but was made with a distinctive Golden color and removed the edge milling (making it feel different than a Quarter).

Now we have the first in the Presidential Series of US Dollar Coins, featuring the first US President, George Washington.
