$20 1908-P No Motto St. Gaudens Gold Double Eagle PCGS MS64

Rough Rider Hoard Label

Product Code: C7058
This stunning 1908-P No Motto Saint-Gaudens Gold Double Eagle is graded Mint State 64 by PCGS and comes with a limited edition Rough Rider Hoard label. Of all 1908-P No Motto Saint-Gaudens Double Eagles that were minted, only a limited 2% of them have been graded in Mint State 64 condition. This coin bears the original design of the Saint-Gaudens Double Eagle, which did not contain an inscription of the motto "In God We Trust." The design was modified to include the motto partway through 1908. It was for less than two years, 1907 and part of 1908, that the Saint-Gaudens Double Eagle did not contain the motto, making these examples very limited. In 1933, President Franklin Delano Roosevelt passed Executive Order 6102. This executive order recalled gold from the American public in order to be melted down. As a result, rare gold coins like the 1908 No Motto Saint-Gaudens Double Eagle have become even rarer to come across.
