The introduction of the original Japanese silver trade dollar in 1874 was precipitated by a three-year expedition by Japanese dignitaries. Known as the Iwakura Mission, this collection of Japanese dignitaries traveled the world representing the Emperor of Japan between 1871 and 1873. At this point in history, Japan was looking to expand its economy regionally and globally.


On the obverse side of 2023 Proof Japanese Trade Dollar Coins, you will find an effigy of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty is shown here in right-profile relief wearing the George IV State Diadem Crown. The fifth-and-final portrait of Her Majesty, this design was created in 2015 by Jody Clark. Inscriptions on this field read QUEEN ELIZABETH II, ST. HELENA, ONE POUND, and 2023.


The reverse face of the 2023 Proof Japanese Trade Dollar Silver Coin comes with a modern vision of the Japanese dragon. This design comes with a Japanese dragon in the foreground in right-profile relief clutching an orb. In the background, a stylized globe is turned to focus on the Japanese main islands. Inscriptions include TRADE DOLLAR and the EIC mint mark.


The Japanese trade dollar of the 19th century was issued with a total weight of 27.22 grams and a silver fineness of 90% silver. In total, the coins had 26.96 grams of silver and were produced from 1875 to 1877.


These 2023 Proof Japanese Trade Dollar 1 oz Silver Coins are available in plastic capsules with a presentation display and a story booklet. These proof coins have frosted designs and mirrored fields.
