1999-P Susan B. Anthony Dollar

Have a 1999 dollar coin and want to know its value? Leave a comment

To meet the demands of vending machines throughout America but in particular New York City the government authorized a one year minting of the Susan B. Anthony dollar.


Just like the version issued twenty years earlier these dollars have Susan B. Anthony on the front and an eagle, the moon, and the Earth-rise.

Despite never being popular they are still used daily in cities with transit vending machines. Oddly enough you can get a dozen of these as change in a Metrocard machine but try to use them in a store above most subway stations and you may get a dirty look or even a rejection. The Anthony dollars in particular with there quarter size tends to give cashiers problems.

Here's the stats...
Type/Country: 1 Dollar / United States
Year: 1999P
Mintage: 29,592,000
Metal: 75% copper 25% nickel
Value: VF-20 $1.00

I have several questions that you probably asked yourself at one point.
Why are pennies called pennies and dimes called dimes?
Why do you have a one dollar bill and a one cent coin still?
(I'm Aussie Kid and am clueless about coins because I am Australian.)

Oh also you may or may not know that in Australia an Australian icon called the monorain (basically a small train on a single rail the goes above streets and building etc) has been closed down and is being sold to somewhere else in Australia (I think it's Tasmania) and I have 2 1988 TNT Monorail tokens which have a Kookaburra and a Platypus on then. Will they increase in value due to it's closing down and would most people have just chucked them away? Thanks!

Why are pennies called pennies and dimes called dimes?
--Penny comes from the old English tradition although officially it is one Cent. The English invented the term and know it is part of our everyday lives.

Dime another English term meaning tenth (1/10) it also stuck with us because it quicker than saying ten cents.

Why do you have a one dollar bill and a one cent coin still?
--Same reason we use feet and inches. We're American and we do not change quickly.
The one cent coin is still used in large amounts especially among the poor. Americans do not trust the rounding up system. People feel they are getting cheated if they don't have pennies.

As for dollar bills they are more easier to carry. Dollar coins have failed for the last 40 years because it is just to heavy. It does not matter that it cost more to make and supply since we a re paying for convenience.

When I use the Metrocard machine I put in a $10 bill spent $5.00 and got 5 dollar coins in change. They were bulky, kept making noise, and did not fit my wallet. I, Like most Americans would rather get 5 dollar bills which I can fold and tuck away anywhere.

They are very common and they have remained about $2.00 or less since 1988. I do not see that changing.

Just like coins it is about circulation. If these tokens were used daily and easy to get before then they have little value unless they are recalled.
