The first Susan B. Anthony dollars were struck at the Philadelphia Mint on
December 13, 1978. First strikes at the Denver and San Francisco Mints
followed on January 9, 1979 and January 29, respectively. Mint officials
feared that the coins would be hoarded upon release, so they ordered the 
creation of a stockpile consisting of 500 million coins prior to the release 
date in July 1979. They were minted until 1981, when the series was
halted due to poor public reception and again in 1999.
