No, it's not gone. It's on the edge along with E Pluribus Unum.
Keep spreading the FUD.

:laughing: for spreading the myth that the site you actually linked to dispels.

It's inscribed on the edge, just like the country's original motto, "E Pluribus Unum," which is far more meaningful than some religious-based saying.

Myth? Is it on the face of the coin like all others or is it missing?

First coin that I know of that has something printed on the edge?
And yes, I put snopes on there for a purpose.

Even if they would have omitted it, who cares? Most Americans have phased out the actual practice of religion from their own lives. They try to speak Christianity, but they don't live it. So why do they care when the government phases religion out of it's own ranks? Now children, can we say hypocrites?

One of the greatest American symbols - the American dollar, have been presented to the world with a new look. 300 million new George Washington dollar coins were recently struck. About 50,000 proved to be without the edge inscription "In God We Trust"without the edge inscription . People around the world are arguing whether it was made mistakenly or intentionally. New coins are even considered a disgrace to the country.



The coins were released on February 15, 2007. Most of the dollars were made in Philadelphia and the rest in Denver. So far the error reports come only from Philadelphia. The new coins are colored in gold and are slightly larger and thicker than a quarter.



A properly struck dollar coin bears the image of George Washington. It also includes "In God We Trust", "E Pluribus Unum" inscriptions and the year and mint mark inscription along the edge.



The error didn't pass unnoticed. One of the first coins was sold for $600 before the story became known to the world. Now almost everyone can get one on the EBay for about $50.



The U.S. Mint takes this matter seriously and considers quality control to be its highest priority. The Mint looks forward to determine the possible cause of the problem that occurred in the manufacturing process. Still there are people who try to find some conspiracy in this story. The rumors say that the religious motto was deliberately omitted.



Thoreson, a modern coins expert, assures that this is not for the first time, since 1866, when the national motto was excluded from the U.S. currency.



In February the U.S. Mint began producing the new coins to commemorate the nation's past presidents. Washington dollars are the first in a series of presidential coins, meant to circulate until 2016. For this year the series of the presidential coins include John Adams, Thomas Jefferson and James Madison.
