Found Gold Coin Hoard is really Stolen Mint Coins?
In 1900, $30,000 of gold coins were stolen from the San Francisco Mint.
The cans of gold coins held $27,000 worth of face value gold.
Now one of the coins, of the so-called "Saddle Ridge Hoard" was an 1866 Gold $20 coin, WITHOUT the motto "In God We Trust" on it.
That coin, was probably created at the San Francisco Mint as a rarity for a mint worker. An inside job. The S, on the coin stands for San Francisco.
Looks like the motto for this story is, "No God, No Gold!"
