Buy a 1908 $20 Saint No Motto NGC MS62 Gold Double Eagle, and you’ll be investing in an American classic, made from 22 Karat Gold (0.9000 fine gold), with a weight of 0.9675oz or 33.4400 grams. Both the obverse and reverse sides of the coin were designed by Augustus Saint-Gaudens, after an intervention by President Roosevelt to “give us a coinage that would have some beauty.” Their collaboration resulted in one of the most beautiful and revered coins in U.S history.

The obverse of this coin features a full-length representation of Liberty, facing towards us, with an olive branch in her left hand and a torch raised in her right hand, reaching just above her head. Liberty is depicted wearing a long, flowing gown with her hair flowing behind her right shoulder. Her left foot rests on a rock which is partially obscured by a branch of oak leaves. As you glance down the coin, the sun is visible rising behind Liberty, as is the U.S. Capitol building, peeping out just below the hem of Liberty’s gown. The word LIBERTY arches across the top of the coin, though the torch interplays with the lettering, separating the I and B. Forty-six stars, representing the 46 states, can be seen circling the coin just inside the rim, though they too are interrupted at one point by the rock and oak leaves. The reverse design of this coin features an eagle flying against the rays of the sun.

This version of Saint Gauden’s 1908 $20 does not include the motto ‘IN GOD WE TRUST’ and it has been speculated that the absence of this motto was down to Roosevelt, who it was believed considered invoking God’s name on a coin as a blasphemous act. The ‘no motto’ version was available for a relatively fleeting period, as the motto was restored later in 1908 after an intervention by Congress. However, following the discovery of a hoard of these coins, this issue has become more readily available, and hence it represents a cost-effective way to invest in a historic gem.

A genuine coin, with a legal tender of 20 dollars, this is not a reproduction. It has been certified as having a mint state of 62, meaning it is an average or slightly weak strike with no trace of wear, but which has been judged to have more or deeper abrasions than an MS63 coin, for instance. ‘Without Motto’ Saints were struck by the U.S. Mint at their Philadelphia and Denver branches.
