The coins were housed in a Nevada Wells Fargo bank, which is why they are referred to as the Wells Fargo hoard. The quality of the coins was amazing and they represent some of the finest Saint-Gaudens on the market today.
The quality of each coin is superior to whats normally found in hoards. The present coin was certified by NGC decades ago. This coin is a premium quality example that collectors search for to add to their collection. In 1907, President Theodore Roosevelt commissioned the most famous sculptor of the day, Augustus Saint-Gaudens, to re-design U.
The President thought it was inappropriate to have "In God We Trust" on coinage, and instructed Saint-Gaudens to remove the Motto. However, after the first release of gold to the public, the tremendous outcry from citizens across the USA cause an Act of Congress to restore the "In God We Trust" motto in the latter part of 1908.The item "1908-P $20 Saint Gaudens N/M Gold Double Eagle Pre-33 NGC MS65 Wells Fargo Hoard" is in sale since Friday, September 4, 2020.
