USA 1-DOLLAR (KM207) Bald Eagle

Smartly, the US wants to get rid of costly $1 notes that wear out fast, and replace them with coins that last for decades. Not-so-smartly, the government lacked the political will to do as Canada did, namely, just get rid of the note! Do that, and people will use the coin.

The Susan B. Anthony dollar is the US Mint's first attempt. Originally minted from 1979 to 1981, the coin was so badly received by the good citizens that it was withdrawn. It returned in 1999 for another go round, then was replaced in 2000 by the Sacagawea dollar.

On the reverse, we see the Eagle landing on the moon, which of course is representative of the first US moon landing where the lunar landing module was named "Eagle."
