They have been a favorite of investors and collectors for decades. The 1907 high relief design was the closest to the design presented by the sculptor and was later reproduced with a shallower version used till the series was ended in 1933.Early designs had the motto. Removed at the insistence of then President Theodore Roosevelt who felt it was sacrilegious.
