I did a little research and found this.

The inscription of "In God We Trust" has been on US coins for a lot longer than I thought. Check it out here:

It looks like the motto has been on some coins since 1864.

The first appearance on paper money appears to have been in 1957.


July 30
1956 -- The President signed a Joint Resolution declaring that the motto In God We Trust would be the national motto.

Interesting reading in all the research to say the least.
