1908-P No Motto Saint-Gaudens Double Eagle MS64

Description

The Saint-Gaudens Double Eagle, named after its designer Augustus Saint-Gaudens, was introduced in 1907 and struck until all U.S. gold denominations were recalled in 1933. The Saint Gaudens Double Eagle went through several slight redesigns however, this 1908 example does not contain the motto, "IN GOD WE TRUST." The obverse features Liberty in a forward stride carrying a lit torch and olive branch in her hands. A rising sun dominates the background while a total of 46 stars border the coin`s rim, representative of the states during that time since New Mexico and Arizona were not yet admitted to the nation. The reverse displays an eagle in flight with the rising sun below. This 1908 example is composed of 90% gold and in Mint State 64 condition.
