Why purchase this limited mintage 2021 Saint Helena "Modern" Chinese Trade Dollar 1 oz. silver bullion coin?
This exquisite silver bullion coin issued by the island of Saint Helena is the inaugural release of a "Modern" Trade Dollar series. Originally, trade dollars were struck by multiple countries in the 19th and early 20th centuries to facilitate trade with China and the Far East. This exciting series proposes modernized interpretations of the trade dollar. The first release re-imagines the Dragon Dollar, the silver Trade Dollar of China.
Stunning Contemporary Chinese Dragon Dollar
Obverse: The obverse is adorned with a gorgeously lifelike, right facing portrait of the current British monarch, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. Surrounding inscriptions include "QUEEN ELIZABETH II," "ST. HELENA," "ONE POUND" and "2021." This rendition of the Queen represents the fifth definitive coinage portrait of the monarch. The image is the work of artist Jody Clark, an award-winning sculptor/engraver for The Royal Mint since 2012.
Reverse: The reverse features the graceful, serpentine form of a Chinese style dragon, as it coils itself around a stylized globe in the background. The powerful, legendary creature is depicted with a pearl in its grasp, a symbol for wisdom and enlightenment in Chinese culture. The inscription "TRADE DOLLAR" sweeps overhead.
