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

The U.S. Mint introduced the Saint-Gaudens Gold Double Eagle in 1907, featuring imagery created in a collaborative effort between President Theodore Roosevelt and sculptor Augustus Saint-Gaudens. This 1908 "No Motto" issue was struck at the Philadelphia Mint from .9675 Troy oz. of .900 fine gold, with a reported final mintage of 4,271,551. Design of the coin was modified to include the motto "IN GOD WE TRUST" for the remaining years of the series in August 1908.
