The Susan B. Anthony dollar is a United States dollar coin minted from 1979
to 1981, when production was suspended due to poor public acceptance,
and then again in 1999. Intended as a replacement for the cumbersome
Eisenhower dollar, the new smaller one dollar coin went through testing
of several shapes and compositions, but all were opposed by the vending
machine industry, a powerful lobby affecting coin legislation. Finally, a
round
planchet with an eleven-sided inner border was chosen for the
smaller dollar.
