All of today’s coins and banknotes feature the motto “In God We Trust” – but at one time, the motto was not included in the designs. During the Civil War 150 years ago, Congress mandated that “In God We Trust” had to appear on the nation’s money. 
The Series of 1935 $1 Silver Certificates was America's last bank note without the motto "In God We Trust." When the design change was made with the addition of the motto on the back, the series date was changed to the Series of 1957. However, a small number of Series of 1935 notes were made in 1961 with the motto.
According to the dating system for bank notes, these should have been the Series of 1957. It is not clear whether this was an mistake on the U.S. Treasury's part but what is clear is that the Series of 1935 $1 Silver Certificate with the motto is exceptionally scarce. These banknotes are fascinating pieces of history, which disappeared from circulation decades ago.
