Why purchase this 1908-P Saint-Gaudens No Motto Gold Double Eagle coin?
The U.S. Mint launched the Saint-Gaudens Gold Double Eagle series in 1907. Imagery of the coin is credited to acclaimed American sculptor Augustus Saint-Gaudens, who worked closely with President Theodore Roosevelt to finalize the design. The coin's inaugural release was not well-received by the public for its lack of the national motto "In God We Trust." The Mint remedied the issue by adding the motto to the coin's reverse in August of 1908. This 1908 dated example of the series was minted before the design modification, reflecting the original vision of Saint-Gaudens and the President.
Breathtaking Rendition of Lady Liberty
Obverse: Lady Liberty is featured on the obverse, stepping forward while holding a torch and an olive branch in her outstretched arms, as the sun rises over the U.S. Capitol Building in Washington D.C. in the background. Inscribed "LIBERTY" and "1908." The stars bordering the image represent the number of states in the union, which amounted to forty-six at the time of issue.
Reverse: The reverse symbolizes the pursuit of freedom, in the form of an eagle in flight with the rays of the sun emanating from below in the background. Inscribed "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA" and "TWENTY DOLLARS."
