Five stunning designs including the British, US, Japanese, Chinese and French Trade Dollars

Created for commerce, trade dollars were a de-facto currency used for trade with the Orient. Issued by merchants in silver to the same specification as the Spanish Dollar, they allowed trade in tea, spices, porcelain and silks to flourish following the end of the First Opium War. They became symbolic calling cards for nations trading with the Far East.

A lasting tribute to a currency born out of commerce and trade, The East India Company’s Trade Dollar Collection includes designs inspired by the original coins issued by various countries across the world for trade with the Orient.

This beautiful five coin set includes the SOLD OUT 2018 British Trade Dollar 1oz Gold Proof Coin,

along with the 2018 US Trade Dollar, 2019 Chinese Trade Dollar, 2019 Japanese Trade Dollar and 2020 French Trade Dollar 1oz Gold Proof Coins presented in luxury five coin presentation case with numbered certificate of authenticity.


2018 British Trade Dollar

Featuring a design faithfully inspired by the original of a standing Britannia surrounded by an oriental pattern. The obverse, for the first time, displays the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II surrounded by an arabesque cartouche.

2018 US Trade Dollar

Inspired by the original William Barber design, considered by many to have been one of Barber’s best coin creations, the 2018 US Trade Dollar features the classic Seated Lady Liberty beautifully engraved with a uniquely patterned obverse.
