Analysis: No one-dollar coins were produced on which the motto “In God We Trust” was intentionally omitted. According to the U.S. Mint, an unknown number of one-dollar George Washington coins (at least 50,000 of them, by one estimate) were erroneously struck without the motto in 2007 and found their way into the batch of 300 million issued on February 15 of that year.
Rumors began circulating soon afterward to the effect that the religious slogan, which has been a standard inscription on U.S. coins since 1938 and the national motto since 1956, was intentionally omitted from the entire run of one-dollar coins.
That rumor is false, unless government sources are mistaken or lying. What remains unclear is whether it was inspired by the above-mentioned minting error or the fact that even when properly manufactured the new coin says “In God We Trust” on its outer edge instead of its face, per the Presidential $1 Coin Act of 2005:
