While a large quantity were produced in 1979, the Susan B. Anthony dollar coin
failed to circulate well (despite the slogan "Carry three for Susan B.") and a minimal
number were produced in 1980. Public reaction to the coin was primarily negative,
with complaints that it was smaller than previous dollar coins and was also too easily
confused with the Washington quarter. Its unpopularity was compared to the greatly
disliked 20¢ piece from 1875, which was also easily confused with the quarter.
