In 1980, the US Mint sold 3,554,806 of the 1980 Proof Sets, a slight decrease from the previous year. It was the second year that the Proof Set included the Susan B. Anthony Dollar. The Anthony Dollar was the first time that a woman had appeared on a circulating coin. While the Proof Set still contained 6 coins and the face value of the coins in the set remained the same, the US Mint increased the price from $9.00 to $10.00. The Proof coins were intended to have a cameo or deep cameo finish. This set was made by the US Mint in San Francisco. Right now, these 1980 US Mint Proof Sets are available for purchase from Silver.com.

In 1980, the Proof Sets packaging was down-sized to accommodate the smaller Anthony Dollar. The coins were no longer sealed in individual rings but rather placed in individual slots in a red plastic insert. The plastic insert was sealed in a two-piece, clear plastic case. The clear plastic case slid into a black plastic sleeve, which could serve as a stand. The outer cardboard box had a single opening at the top to slide the main holder into.

The Anthony Dollar obverse features a right-facing profile of social reformer Susan B. Anthony. The original design for this smaller dollar was a representation of Lady Liberty, however, numerous organizations and individuals within Congress requested that the obverse depict a real woman. Susan B. Anthony garnered the most support from numerous sources. Both obverse designs were the creation of Frank Gasparro.

The Anthony Dollar reverse retained the reverse design from the Eisenhower Dollar. It is an engraving of the Apollo 11 mission insignia, featuring an eagle, in flight, clutching a laurel branch in its talons. The eagle is flying over the landscape of the moon, and there is an image of the earth just above and to the left of his head. This design also was created by Frank Gasparro.
