The coin is a Motto Added type which was brought about as a result of a letter written to Secretary Salmon P. Chase by the Reverend Mark Richards Watkinson of Ridleyville, Pennsylvania. Watkinson’s letter was the first requesting that God’s name be added to our coinage. The motto was a subtle reminder that the North considered itself on God’s side with respect to slavery. Congress passed the enabling legislation on April 22, 1866. The motto remained on the eagle until 1907 when Theodore Roosevelt asked designer Augustus Saint-Gaudens to omit the motto on his new Indian Head ten-dollar coins.
