The St. Helena series of silver coins serves as a tribute to the trade silver dollars that were issued by the United States Mint during a 12-year period after the 1860s civil war. Known as the Reconstruction Era, this period saw the nation looking to boost an international trade profile. The 2018 St. Helena US Trade Dollar 1 oz Silver Coins are issued by St. Helena, which is a small island in the South Atlantic.
The original US Trade Dollar was first in circulation between 1873 and 1885. They were first issued by the United States Mint. The coins were designed to compete with other silver coins already in circulation across East Asia. The US Trade Silver Dollars design was handled by British-born engraver William Barber. Barber served as the United States Mint Chief Engraver between 1869 and 1879. Several of his designs have been featured on coins in the years since.
The obverse of the 2018 St. Helena US Trade Dollar 1 oz Silver Coin features the effigy of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II. On this coin, Her Majestys full right-profile portrait, representative of the fifth-generation design, is featured. This portrait depicts Her Majesty wearing a crown and a necklace.
The reverse of the 2018 St. Helena US Trade Dollar 1 oz Silver Coin features William Barbers design for the US Trade Silver Dollar of the 19thcentury. The design depicts Lady Liberty. She is seated and faces the Far East, an olive branch in her extended hand. The beautiful Lady Liberty is surrounded by 13 stars. The words The East India Company and Trade Dollar are engraved on the coin.
The 2018 St. Helena US Trade Dollar 1 oz Silver Coin is a beautiful tribute to the original design issued by the United States Mint. It may be difficult to find the original series of coins from the 1800s, but collectors will enjoy having these beautiful tributes to a piece of history.
