2018 US Trade Dollar 1oz Silver Proof Coin
During the 1860’s an increase in trade between China and the United States paved the way for a ‘commercial’ US Trade Dollar that could compete with the silver trade coins used by other countries in the Orient. The new American Trade Dollars with a fineness of 90 percent silver and weighing 27.2 grams were minted for export from 1873. Minted until 1878, they were to become one of the shortest lived of all United States numismatic series.

The Trade Dollar Collection
Created by commerce, the silver trade dollars of the Orient became the ‘calling card’ for nations looking to exchange silver bullion for luxuries with the Far East.
Beautifully designed and faithfully inspired by the original Trade Dollars of Britain, United States, China, France and Japan, The Trade Dollar collection is a series of five trade dollars struck to the highest proof quality in 1oz gold and 1oz silver weights creating a five coin collection to treasure and collect.
