The Gold Double Eagle was America's last circulating $20 Gold coin and displays unmatched beauty and rich history with outstanding luster. This coin was originally designed as a high relief and looked more like a medal, but was lowered for a number of reasons namely because they did not stack well and because they had to be struck multiple times which wore out the dies quicker than normal.
This coin was originally designed as a high relief and looked more like a medal, but was lowered for a number of reasons namely because they did not stack well and because they had to be struck multiple times which wore out the dies quicker than normal. Due to this fact Saint-Gaudens had to redesign the coin which he decided to reduce to the size of a checker. However, once he found out that the consent of Congress was required to change a coins diameter he lowered the relief so that these coins could be easily stacked and struck.
1907 Saints and some 1908 Saints do not bear the motto "In God We Trust" as it was not required by law to use this motto on coinage. President Roosevelt even defended Saint-Gaudens' omission by stating that it was a profane use of God's name.
