This coin was originally designed as a high relief and looked more like a medal, but was lowered for a number of reasons namely because they did not stack well and because they had to be struck multiple times which wore out the dies quicker than normal. Saint-Gaudens had to redesign the coin by lowering the relief so that these coins could be easily stacked and struck.
This coin is considered by many to be the most beautiful American coin ever produced. 1907 Saints and some 1908 Saints do not bear the motto In God We Trust as it was not required by law to use this motto on coinage. President Roosevelt even defended Saint-Gaudens' omission by stating that it was a profane use of God's name.1,359 Item as described. Rec'd item, looking forward to doing business with again.
