Ironically, the earliest US currency did not have the "In God We Trust" motto on it - that was introduced during the US Civil War.

Any US money made in the last 150 years without the motto is probably due to an error in production.

IN GOD WE TRUST was first used on paper money in 1957. * I agree, I have no idea why it would have anything to do with anyone's waistline.
