In accordance with President Theodore Roosevelt's wishes, the motto "In God We Trust" is not on this coin. It wasn't until 1908 when public outcry forced the motto back onto the coin where it was then put into law.
1907 was the beginning of change in America’s coinage. Two new gold coins were introduced to the public, both designed by famed sculptor Augustus Saint-Gaudens. But how did this all take place? In 1907, it was a transition year for the Mint as the old and all too familiar Liberty coins were coming to an end per President Theodore Roosevelt’s request. “I think our coinage is artistically of atrocious hideousness” Roosevelt said. With his office and power Roosevelt successfully pushed through normal government bureaucracy to establish a new look to America’s gold coinage. The new $10 Eagle, or Indian as it is affectionately known, was designed by Saint-Gaudens. Its obverse faces left and its reverse design, the eagle, faces west. It was originally struck in high relief, such as a medal, but was later redesigned by Charles Barber shortly after, due to Saint-Gaudens death at 59. They were redesigned for two reasons, one; they did not stack well, and two; it took multiple strikes, which wore quickly on the dies, to produce these coins. Once the relief had been redesigned by Barber, the Mint struck 239,000 pieces for circulation.
