Early issue Saint-Gaudens Double Eagles did not contain the motto "In God We Trust," but due to public disapproval, the motto was added to the coin in 1908. This 1907-P Saint-Gaudens Double Eagle does not have the motto on the reverse. Years later, in 1933, Franklin Delano Roosevelt initiated Executive Order 6102, which recalled gold from the American public in order to be melted down. As a result of this executive order, rare coins like the 1907-P Saint-Gaudens became drastically more difficult to find.
