Why the USD is this inscription? In God we trust

Why is not this? WE TRUST IN GOD or IN GOD WE TRUST ???




In English, the most important things come first in a sentence. So technically, even though "in God" would naturally come at the end of the sentence (subject being "we"), the main focus of the sentence is "in God". So, "In God we trust." It's not common grammar, but it does exist.

Thank you
