In the wake of skyrocketing silver prices in the late 1800’s, British merchants needed a reliable way to trade with eastern nations without having to depend on the short supply of foreign silver coins. So in 1895, the silver British Trade Dollar was born. The 2018 1 oz British Trade Dollar Silver Round pays tribute to this historic coin that was minted exclusively for use in the Far East.
A thoroughly British coin with an enchanting eastern feel, this coin is beautifully executed and is a joy to have in hand. Don’t wait to add a 1 oz Silver British Trade Dollar to your order today!
The obverse features a beautiful eastern design within a Chinese scroll frame. The coin’s denomination is displayed in two languages: Chinese and Jawi Malay.
The reverse depicts the same iconic, helmet-wearing Brittania as the original British Silver Trade Dollar. Brittania stands tall with her eyes on the horizon, grasping the British shield in her left hand and a trident in her right. Behind her, a loaded ship under full sail strikes out for distant shores. It is framed in the same beautiful Chinese scroll pattern as the obverse, with the round’s weight and fineness encircling the image.
The 1 oz British Trade Dollar is produced by the privately-operated Golden State Mint (GSM). Since 1974, the Golden State Mint has manufactured millions of rounds and bars for bullion dealers across the nation, with a silver purity that equals that of sovereign-minted rounds. GSM is a life member of the American Numismatic Association, along with several other well-respected numismatic organizations. GSM is a family company dedicated to stellar customer service, and remains one of the most highly-regarded private mints in the industry today.
