Susan B. Anthony House Launches "Send Susan Home"

“SEND SUSAN B. ANTHONY HOME” ---That’s the refrain being heralded by the Susan B. Anthony House and museum, a National Historic Landmark, in Rochester, NY. Remember those Susan B. Anthony dollars first minted by the United States Treasury in 1979? They were originally released by the U.S. Mint at the Susan B. Anthony House at 17 Madison Street in Rochester, New York. The dollar coin, the first U.S. currency to bear the image of a famous American woman, went into circulation from her home much the same she journeyed forth from Madison Street to campaign for human rights. About eight hundred million Susan B. Anthony dollars were minted over twenty years. However,the coin was similar enough in size and color to the quarter that it never caught on as currency.
