DESCRIPTION
This stunning 1907 Saint-Gaudens Double Eagle comes from the series` first year of issue and has a low mintage of just 361,667. In addition to that, it is graded a Choice Uncirculated Mint State 64 by either NGC or PCGS. The Saint-Gaudens Gold Double Eagle, widely considered the most beautiful piece of American coinage ever created, was minted from 1907 to 1933. Due to President Theodore Roosevelt`s dislike of U.S. coinage at the time, he employed the famed sculptor, Augustus Saint-Gaudens, to redesign the Double Eagle. This first year of issue 1907 Saint-Gaudens Double Eagles does not contain the motto "In God We Trust," but due to public disapproval, the motto was added to the coins in 1908. 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 gold coins like the 1907 Saint-Gaudens became drastically more difficult to find.
