Intended to honor this pioneer in women's rights, legislation dated October 10, 1978 provided for the issuance of the Susan B. Anthony Dollar coin. Both obverse and reverse designs were the work of Chief Engraver of the U.S. Mint, Frank Gasparro. His initials FG are located below the portrait and the eagle. Placement of the Susan B. Anthony's likeness on the Dollar represented the first time that a women, other than a mythical figure, has appeared on a circulating U.S. coin. The reverse design is the same as that used on the Eisenhower Dollar. Mint marks P, D, or S appear on the observe, slightly above Anthony's right shoulder. The size of this coin caused it to be confused with the quarter and it failed to gain widespread public acceptance.
