Susan B Anthony Dollar.
trifith is right about who Susan B Anthony was.
Note that the eagle is landing on the moon...reference to the US moon landings.

That is a US 1 dollar coin. The lady on the front is Susan B Anthony. The woman known for creating the Amarican flag. The Bald Eagle is the Nation bird of the USA.

I take it your not from the US?

Susan B Anthony was an activist for womens right to vote.

Betsy Ross designed the US flag.

The coin in question is mostly copper and has a melt value significantly below its face value. Take it to a bank if you don't want it, it's still legal tender.
