  • Description:

    In 1908, there were some changes made to the Saint-Gaudens double eagles that would affect the design for future double eagles. Before 1908, the Saint-Gaudens' design didn't contain the motto, "In God We Trust," which annoyed Congress. For the 1908 issues, Congress demanded this important motto be stamped into the coin's design. The US Mint's Chief Engraver, William Barber, took this chance to also make other modifications to the double eagle. Apart from adding the motto, Barber's changes included: a change to the font style, a pupil and an extra feather were added to the eagle on the reverse, and one sunshine ray was removed making a total of 33. Most of the 1908-D Motto double eagles were preserved by European banks overseas, during the two world wars. The Certified $20 Saint-Gaudens 1908-D Motto has earned the ideal grade of MS63, by NGC.
