2019 1 oz Silver St. Helena Chinese Trade Dollar

This remarkably stunning 2019 1 oz Silver St. Helena Chinese Trade Dollar BU is presented with a design faithful to that of the original Chinese styled Trade Dollars introduced in 1889 by Britain. During the later 19th century, British merchants had begun expanding trade into the Far East. This expansion of trading interests had long been problematic due to the shortage and inconsistency of silver currency throughout the Orient. Standardizing the means of trading was a high priority in their efforts to stabilize the British colonies in the East. To this end, the British Trade Dollar was designed and produced to be used solely for trade in the Far East.

This 2019 1 oz Silver St. Helena Chinese Trade Dollar BU is the third edition to be released in this low mintage, beautifully produced, and highly popular series of five historic Far East Trade Dollars.

Stunning Design Reproductions

In 2018, the East India Company launched a remarkably well-produced new 5-coin series. This series is dedicated to paying rich tribute to the historic and internationally significant silver Trade Dollars of the Far East. The inaugural release was the beautiful reproduction of the British Trade Dollar featuring Britannia. This was followed by the very striking U.S. Trade Dollar displaying the exceptionally detail image of Lady Liberty seated. Both were produced in cooperation with British Overseas Territory of Saint Helena in the South Atlantic.

Mystic Beauty and Fierceness

The obverse of this Chinese Trade Dollar edition features the Jody Clark distinctive portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II in the center inset. A fine beaded band encircles the inset. Fully encircling the band are the inscriptions, “QUEEN ELIZABETH II . ST. HELENA . ONE DOLLAR . 2019.” At the rim is a beautiful Chinese styled scroll band.

Perhaps the most remarkable design reproduction yet, is the Chinese dragon image revealed on the reverse of this 2019 1 oz Silver St. Helena Chinese Trade Dollar is incredible! The detail clearly reveals both the creature’s mystic beauty and fierceness. And, of course, the elusive flaming pearl ever hovers before its gaze and just outside its reach. The image is set within a circular center inset, encircled by a fine, beaded band. Fully encircling the band are the inscriptions “THE EAST INDIA COMPANY . TRADE DOLLAR.” At the rim is a beautiful Chinese styled scroll band.

Considering the historical significance of this 5-coin series, as well as the beautifully stunning design, and a very limited mintage of only 5,000, this 2019 1 oz Silver St. Helena Chinese Trade Dollar will be an important addition to your collection!
