$20 Saint Gaudens No Motto MS63 Certified
Widely Hailed as a Masterpiece
The Saint-Gaudens "Double Eagle" is considered by many the most magnificent and sought-after U.S. coin of the 20th century. President Theodore Roosevelt commissioned sculptor Augustus Saint Gaudens to design this beautiful coin, first minted in 1907. In addition to its beauty, it is treasured for its iconic role in history, and as an investment grade gold coin with powerful appreciation potential.
A Rarity Among Rarities
The 1908 date of this coin is unique in that it was the only year that the U.S. Mint struck both "With Motto" and "No Motto" versions. Specifically, "In God We Trust" was omitted from the coins issued in 1907 and the first few months of 1908, but poor public response resulted in the motto being reinstated a few months later. To date, the rare "No Motto" version of the Double Eagle - 5.9 times rarer than its "With Motto" counterpart - has outperformed both bullion and the more common "With Motto" Double Eagle.
