Especially in the earlier years of issue, a single Gold Double Eagle represented a typical monthly wage for an average worker. In 1866 the motto In God We Trust was added to the reverse above the eagle, though both Motto and No Motto varieties were produced in that same year. This series was struck at the Philadelphia, San Francisco and Carson City mints. This piece come in a mint state 62, and are certified by NGC.
