Each of these coins contains 0.9675 troy ounces of pure gold. The reverse designs originally didn't feature the motto'In God We Trust' when the first coins were struck in 1907.This caused a furor that abated only when the design was changed next year. Like the reverse, the obverses also underwent a slight design change a few years after the coin was launched.
The original releases featured Lady Liberty holding up her torch and olive branch with 46 stars above her head. In 1912, the number of stars was increased to 48 to reflect the addition of New Mexico and Arizona to the United States of America. These gold coins are AU, i. Almost Uncirculated (also known as About Uncirculated in some regions).
