Why purchase this "No Motto" 1908 Saint-Gaudens Gold Double Eagle coin?

The Saint-Gaudens Gold Double Eagle series was introduced by the U.S. Mint in 1907. Imagery for the series is a result of President Theodore Roosevelt's initiative to re-design coinage of the United States to emulate the beauty of coins produced by the ancient Greeks. He selected acclaimed American sculptor Augustus Saint-Gaudens for the task, collaborating on the design for the new Double Eagle. When first issued, the coin was void of the motto "IN GOD WE TRUST." Public outcry over the absence of the motto prompted the Mint to add it to the design in August 1908.

  • This "No Motto" Saint-Gaudens Gold Double Eagle coin was struck at the Philadelphia Mint in 1908.
  • The coin is minted from .9675 Troy oz. of .900 fine gold, with a diameter measurement of 34 mm.
  • Final mintage of the distinctive "No Motto" release is reported to be 4,271,551.

Saint-Gaudens' Magnificent Double Eagle Design
