"Godless" Gold Sparks Public Protests!

Rough Rider President Teddy Roosevelt commissioned the redesign of America's gold coins by famed sculptor Augustus Saint-Gaudens. When the coins were released in 1908, a public protest ensued because the motto "In God We Trust" did not appear on the new coins! It was added later, making these "godless" 1908 No Motto $20 Gold Dollar Double Eagles highly sought after by collectors ever since. Today, they are difficult to find in the Brilliant Uncirculated condition we are offering. Housed in a deluxe presentation case, each is struck in 33.436 grams of 90% gold.
