This 1908 example of the legendary Saint-Gaudens $20 Double Eagle (or $20 Gold Piece, as many people call it) is noteworthy for its lack of the motto "In God We Trust." When famous sculptor Augustus Saint-Gaudens redesigned the $10 and $20 denomination gold coins in 1907, his good friend President Theodore Roosevelt asked him to omit the motto, because Roosevelt didn't believe God's name belonged on coins. The public outcry resulted in quick action in Congress, and in mid-1908, by Act of Congress, the motto was restored. This specimen was minted before the restoration, and was dealer graded MS-62. It sold for $750.00 in June of 2006.
